Album ‘MAGNIFIQUE’ out July 17 on Because Music
In anticipation of their fifth studio album Magnifique (out July 17 on Because Music) RATATAT have released ‘Nightclub Amnesia’.
Following up on the experimental sounds of LP3 and LP4, RATATAT return to their core guitar-driven sound on Magnifique which was recorded over the course of four years in various studios in different locations including Jamaica (the country), upstate New York, Long Island, NY and their home studio in Brooklyn.
The art for Magnifique includes a series of sketches drawn by Mast and Stroud during the recording sessions. What else can you expect on Magnifique: pedal steel guitar, the sound of a tiny 1940’s guitar amp found in a thrift store in Guadalajara used on “Intro,” a song named upon the discovery that the guys both had posters of a “Countach” on their walls in junior high (the duo met in college), and a cover, their first ever, called “I Will Return” by Springwater (aka Phil Cordell).
