Because it is apparently no longer possible to release a high-profile indie rock record without first streaming it on the NPR website for two weeks, electronically minded duo Ratatat’s new album, LP4, is available here, for your listening pleasure form now until its official release on June 8th. I’m only a couple songs in, but it’s every bit as complex and strange and completely, obsessively labored over as I was expecting/hoping. Also worth noting is that this is that I feel like I’m doing the band a huge disservice by listening to this on laptop speakers. Such is life, I suppose.
