RATATAT - "Supreme" (Singles Going Steady)

Come fly with me on soft wings, what a lovely invitation to chill.

Steve Horowitz: Come fly with me on soft wings, what a lovely invitation to chill. The music repeats itself repeats itself as a way of making the vibe relaxing. The guitar, in particular, serves as a tour guide of the exotic calm places. The video offers us a view from the sky with no danger of falling or vertigo. [7/10]

Dustin Ragucos: If Spongebob Squarepants suddenly ended and Ratatat's "Supreme" slipped its way into the eventual tribute piece, no one would really tell that it wasn't a melody from the show. Then again, "Ocean Man" would probably make its way onto the Spongebob canon for the second time. Many a feel will be had while "Supreme" reigns, like it's a song with a double purpose: to allow you to take in the scenery while sucking you into your freefall. [6/10]

Jedd Beaudoin: That draggy, quasi-Western thing is pretty rad. It's like "Sleepwalk" for the new century. But not as interesting as "Sleepwalk". I'd close out a mixtape with it. [6/10]

Timothy Gabriele: Santos and Johnny with power chords. Why didn’t anyone else think of it? I mean, it’s not a good idea, but I’m still surprised no one else thought of it. [4/10]

John Garratt: First, let me grab a ginger ale because my head and my stomach are not agreeing with the visuals. The music, oddly enough, is very agreeable when removed from the video. There is more interesting instrumental guitar sooth-surf out there, but that's neither here nor there. Here's to tonality and, finally, some carbonation. [6/10]

SCORE: 5.80
