New Ratatat video – Drugs

by MV

Still loving Ratatat’s LP4. Tempting me from my usual aversion to instrumental music, it’s a perfectly-judged combination of rigid synthetic formality and dreamy organic textures. A great soundtrack to a summer in a city. Anyway… the video. It’s creepy. Very creepy. I would venture that many of the creepy perfect smiles demonstrated in the first half of the vid are actually far more ‘orrible than the supposed weirdness later on.
