Continuing this run of excellent Dinked titles is Dinked 71, the third album from Dutch post-punk outfit Rats On Rafts. Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths is released on January 29th by Fire Records.
Rats On Rafts have been quietly making waves in the last few years with their psych-pop and garage-rock tinged post punk, and their third album, Excerpts From Chapter 3…, finds the band at its most conceptual and ambitious. Combining warped pop songwriting with experimental noise and found samples, Rats On Rafts cite Smile-era Beach Boys, Scott Walker and Moondog as being big influences on this album, and these can be heard as moments of beauty amongst the reverb-drenched cacophony. Fans of Fews, Ariel Pink and Dry Cleaning will find much to love here!
The Dinked Edition of Excerpts From Chapter 3: The Mind Runs A Net Of Rabbit Paths is on 400 limited dark green LP with an exclusive deluxe origami sleeve, bonus 7″ with an exclusive B-side and an obi strip.
