RATATAT New Album & Concert Schedule

When Beethoven performed his Eroica Symphony for the first time, he left people scratching their heads. It wasn't how Haydn or Mozart did things. It didn't quite sound the way music was supposed to sound. Beethoven dared to explore new directions and in doing so redefined popular music of the time. It's along these same lines that I like to position among the influencers of modern music.

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an early copy of Ratatat's third full length release called, LP3. I can't tell you how happy this makes me. The album pretty much picks up where Classics left off, but it's unfair to say that what you are getting with LP3 is more of the same. It's not. Anyone trained in music theory can see that they are deeply rooted in structure, but like genius minds that have paved the way for music from Beethoven to Pink Floyd they push further with creative energy, emotion, and romanticism using a variety of new sounds.

A great review of the album is written on the .

The album will be officially released on July 8th and they will support it with a short tour.

Don't miss it.
