Evan Mast and Mike Stroud are shy guys. But Ratatat is war music. Evan, known for his bashful meanderings as E*Vax, was dropping enormous flashes of light on the crowd with a foot pedal at their last show. And Mike, who usually backs up his friends on guitar (Dashboard Confessional and Ben Kweller to name a few), was ripping some serious air. It's all about the chords: bipolar sequences throbbing from major to minor with baroque ardor. No, it's the soaring lines that weave through them. It's the constant chunking that drives it, and the skimpy thump tracks when they drop. No, wait, it's the transitions. Like great poems of war. Ratatat's best songs have two parts: a furious charge into the breach and then a bittersweet consolation.
