Rats On Rafts - Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths


  • £20.99

The third album from Dutch noiseniks adds new maturity and a conceptual feel that pulls the extremes of their sound together. A psyche-fuelled journey into the id punctuated with rhythmic kabuki modal mood swings, thunderstorms, digital beeps, traffic noise, and just plain old beautiful cacophonous reverb-drenched sound when needed.

If their previous record, Tape Hiss, was their very own sketch of a sketch for an incomplete concept album, a noisy reaction to their previous life, then Excerpts From Chapter 3..., with all its interlaced intricacies, is the realisation of their transition from punk-spiked-pop to psyche-pop protagonists.
