MUSIC: Ratatat – Cream On Chrome


After disappearing for five years, Ratatat returns. If you weren’t paying attention; Ratatat was an instrumental duo that knew how to bring together Hip-hop production ideas with indie rock instrumentation. On paper that idea sounds pretty horrible but in execution? Fantastic. They even made Kid Cudi listenable. Before they played a presumably cool and breezy set at the West Coast fashion show that is Coachella they released a new track into the world, “Cream On Chrome”. It’s classic Ratatat; funky but fun programmed beat married to cool psychedelic guitar play.
