Ratatat's LP4 Leaks, Band Offers Up New Track "Party With Children"
LP4 kicks off with the three-song arc "Bilal," "Drugs" and the super funky, head-scratchingly brilliant "Neckbrace." The songs all feel like pretty standard-fare Ratatat, yet "Neckbrace" branches off into places unknown with its eery, human beatbox/gutbucket line -- accompanying the already solid, tribal-eqsue drum beat. It is a song far too irresistibly sinister to listen just once, demanding multiple takes just to figure out what the hell is all going on -- and we've now come to expect such an effort from Ratatat.
