Now listening to:
Catching up on some Ratatat.
You know, every now and then you listen to a song and the beat really moves you. The guitar rifts are fantastic. The unique sounds run through your head and just can't stop listening. Then you hear the lyrics and you cringe. A perfectly good song ruined. Some people just are not meant to write lyrics. Or sing. Oh god, some people are just terrible singers.
That is not the case with Ratatat. They stick to what they are good at. Good beats without distracting lyrics. Their last few albums are really good background music for whatever other activity you are working on.
