Mike Stroud and Evan Mast's new album arrives in our ears far later than we'd've liked, some half a decade after LP4 in 2010, but it's been more than worth the wait. Lead cuts "Intro", "Cream On Chrome", "Abrasive" and "Nightclub Amnesia" have proved that.

Magnifique is a mini-jukebox of genre flits and radio static - there's a similarity to Queens Of The Stone Age's concept on Songs For The Deaf - which offers them the chance to dive into fresh worlds with reckless abandon. The result is a multi-faceted exploration of their own sound and the music they've surrounded themselves with - there's even a cover of Springwater's "I Will Return" at the end.

Ratatat will release Magnifique on 17 July via Because Music (XL in the US).
