Song of the Day: Ratatat

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

The New York indie-electronic duo responsible for the sublime Classics doesn't change much on their new exploration of sounds, loops, organs, guitars, overdubs, garage orchestras and wandering soundscapes. That's fine, but the refined quality and better songwriting on their third make everything they did before sound like a practice run.

Chris DeVille said Ratatat is a one-trick pony. If so, their trick is totally sweet. Like sawing a person in half or something.
