Ratatat release a new album, 'Magnifique', on July 17th via Because Music/XL Recordings.
Evan Mast and Mike Stroud haven't put out a Ratatat album since 2010's 'LP4', but they have been putting out new music slowly since the start of the year and playing shows including Coachella.
The experimental alt-rock/synth duo's new album is more guitar-driven than 'LP4', and was recorded over four years in Jamaica, Upstate New York, Long Island, and in Brooklyn. The press release also promises "pedal steel guitar, the sound of a tiny 1940s guitar amp found in a thrift store in Guadalajara … and a cover, their first ever, called I Will Return by Springwater (aka Phil Cordell)."
You can listen to Cream On Chrome now and watch a video for Intro above.
