I enjoy listening to good music, but lately I haven’t bought many new albums for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that I simply haven’t heard something new that I really liked for a long time. It was therefore very nice to check out Kevin Rose’s (from Digg and Diggnation) Muxtape compilation of Ratatat’s new album LP3, and I liked it immediately. Ratatat is an electronic music duo, which reminds me of Röyksopp and a little bit of Air, and if you like those bands I recommend you check out Ratatat.
It appears someone don’t like this kind of marketing, because now Kevin’s compilation isn’t available any more from his Muxtape page at http://krose.muxtape.com/. I, on the other side, got to listen to the album before it was taken down, and I ordered a copy of the CD. Kevin has a link to a downloadable MP3 version of the album from Amazon on his blog post, but I prefer to have a CD in my collection. If you’re interested, you can still get some samples of the Album from Amazon and on the bands MySpace page, so it is still possible to get a taste before you buy.
