  1. Even if you don't like electronic music, you still need to listen to Ratatat. It's so fucking good and there's no other artist like them, at least from what I've seen, and I've looked a lot. They're one of the best bands to smoke to no doubt.

    Anybody else listen to them?
  2. you're so right bro. they are amazing to listen to high or not high! you should also listen to edi santos, he's made some songs to their instrumentals and they're really good. Their best is Black Heroes!
  3. Of course ratatat is amazing, anyone with a good ear should know that.

    They're the kings of instrumentals in my humble opinion. Another amazing thing about ratatat is that I enjoy nearly EVERY song they make. Very few artists have the talent to make incredible song after incredible song but they pull it off and have been pulling it off for years.

    If I had to choose 1 song of theirs to listen to repeatedly it would have to be "Shempi" listen and you'll know why.

  4. Yes ratatat are great everyone knows thisssssss :)

    Breaking Away's my personal fav, just a beautiful tragic yet uplifting song... kinda affects me the same way Donnie Darko does except music instead of a movie.
  5. It's my favorite as well. That building up in the second half is just too good
  6. ^^^Totally :smoke:...

  11. Surprised there are as many Ratatat fans as there are here =D.

    I'd really like to see them live. One day some friend and I were looking up their live videos and found this one. It's pretty entertaining because you can tell the guy is beyond fucking gone the entire time.

  12. I fuckin love the harmonies in 17 years. Used to listen to that song all the time.
  13. I fuckin' love Ratatat man, I am always bumping them when I am on a blunt ride.
  14. Yeah man, love Ratatat...

  15. Funny you mention them, because when you told me what your username was I looked up Mogwai and listened to their stuff, afterward I was like "huh, I bet he'd like Ratatat" but I figured you already knew about them, and yeah..hence this thread. Yes, Ratatat is cool music. I feel like I can chill, or get work done to them.

    But I'll be honest I rarely listen to them, I'm into harder stuff like Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, etc.

  17. can i post my soundcloud?

    (and ratatat is great btw)
  18. Unfortunately I think that would be considered advertising... I think it should be totally OK to share one's own music with others though, which is why it sucks.
  19. Who saw Ratatat's performance at camp bisco?! fucking great! front row pressed against the gate! sooooo fucking good. waited through a 2 hour Disco Biscuits set to save that spot.

    You can post your soundcloud when it's relevant to the topic on hand. And it's alright to link it in your sig too. There's a pretty big thread for people to post their SC links already though


    The beginning is sorta repetitive but the change up at 1:50 is really fucking good
