Song of the Day 5/21/08: Ratatat - Shiller

 

At this point, it seems effortless for Ratatat. Their progression has been natural and at the same time stunning - from the thumping self-titled debut to a more flourishing, guitar-driven electronic follow-up Classics, with a couple of novel rap remix albums in between. Now we come upon Shiller, a cut from their forthcoming LP. It's a slow-building, ominous affair, lilting through harp sweeps and rounded organ notes, all over the top of static that sounds like a sheet of rain blanketing a deserted street. This next album will undoubtedly flaunt its share of jams, but judging by this track, we may be looking at a spacier third offering. Look for it this summer on XL Recordings.
