Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-10-06This is RATATAT’s third studio album, a follow-up to 2006’s Classics. The duo, Mike Stroud and Evan Mast, recorded the album at Old Soul Studios, which is a large old house in upstate New York. The house was equipped with a wealth of keyboard instruments, but not so much in the way of hi-tech recording. Pretty much every instrument at Old Soul made it onto this record, giving it a broad palette of sounds. This record is much more dynamic than their previous two, with a leaning towards keyboards as opposed to guitars, and live percussion rather than programmed beats. The album was mixed down onto 1/4 inch tape, which has given it another layer of atmosphere. LP3 is timeless, yet very now.-LaRae
