» BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Electro-rock duo RATATAT are coming to the Crofoot! Sez the BBC: the music by these New Yorkers (Mike Stroud and Evan Mast)is "... awash with distortion-drenched melodies, punctuated by jittery clips, claps and clacks. ... Ratatat's unusual take on electronic-infused rock is intensely beautiful." When Ratatat blew into the music scene a few years back, many were simply in awe of their dynamic synth guitar arena club power beats. 'Classics' was an instant classic. Then Ratatat dazzled further with a slew of remixes (my favorite being The Knife’s We Share Our Mother’s Health). After extensive touring (including a stint with Daft Punk), what was next? LP3. Where do they go from 'Classics'? Everywhere. Beautiful. Ratatat went deep within themselves for this album, putting together rich layers of nature, world beat, and club, slightly shying away from their trademark synth-guitar sound.

With DESPOT and THINK ABOUT LIFE.
