After losing their 23-year-old drummer, John Pike, to a tragic death, Ra Ra Riot could have easily falling apart. As Obscure Sound puts it, no matter how many arguments and fistfights were initiated in the past, it is a fact that many groups tend to form a family-like bond after years and even months of touring and working together. Losing a member could be devastating but the guys from Ra Ra Riot realized the best way to honor a friend is by continuing the journey they had all started. Dying is Fine is a poetic melancholic tune inspired by poet e.e. cummings, to which features chorus, “You know that dying is fine, but maybe / I wouldn’t like death if death were good / not even if death were good.” As painful as it may have been they embraced his passing and composed this track to pay tribute to John.

Ok I admit Ratatat has become an extraordinary popular group since their debut album in 2004 AND while I want to keep this post with more obscure music, if we are going to “look back”, ratatat needs all the attention it deserves. A stimulating ride of beats and sounds ratatat is able to appeal to everyones taste. I would describe it as experimental jazzy hip/hop bluesy pop beats but thats already too long to say. Mirando comes of their ‘LP3’ released in 2008.
