1 - RATS ON RAFTS
- EXCERPTS FROM CHAPTER 3: THE MIND RUNS.... - (LP)
Full title: Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths.The Rotterdam based Psych/Post-punk group Rats on Rafts with their new and most textured record to date "Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths". The albums name refers to the period between their previous and this new third album. The album is layered with songs and fragments that on different occasions refer to one another musically and lyrically to form a song cycle. A concept album? It could be, but first and foremost it offers a fragmented view into the wonderful and frightening world of Rats on Rafts. Each song spins a yarn; there are plagues, dreams, wind and fire, mythical characters, and the search for the secret government warehouse. Drinking in the sounds of Van Dyke Parks (Song Cycle) Scott Walker (3 & 4), Moondog (Elpmas), White Noise (An Electric Storm) and Beach Boys (Smile). Its a musical melodrama: created in isolation - something we all know so well - a worldview shut out from the world. This dark psychedelic album is a giant leap into the looking glass which ultimately captures a more intense, experienced, layered and diverse collection of songs. Housed in a unique fold our origami sleeve and recorded and mixed from tape to tape to ensure the vinyl is 100% analog!
