The new single lifted off LP4, the forthcoming fourth album from NY guitar/beat heads Ratatat, doesn’t quite sound like the kind of celebration its title implies. Sure, there’s a party going on, but it’s less with children than with copious amounts of stringed instruments playing an anthemic melody over one of the band’s coolest beats since “Seventeen Years.” “Party With Children” is an upbeat number filled with that trademark guitar sound Ratatat loves so much, along with other familiar sonics from its eclectic repertoire, and headlines the band’s batch of new tracks set for release on June 8.
