Mike Stroud and Evan Mast, we bow down
Instrumental post-rock/electronic duo Ratatat admittedly stick to a similar theme through each of their four albums, slowly building up each track before the group's mix of shredding guitars and technological geekery dominate your eardrums. But the trick works, as the group has gone from master remixers to a full-on band in their own right. Live, unlike some other minimalist duos we've seen, you'd swear there were six people on stage. With Omar Souleyman and Black Pus.
