What's cool about this new video for LP3 track, "Falcon Jab," is how we always felt that Ratatat was a faceless Peruvian man playing pan flute while wearing a winter cap who then transforms into a prince holding a phallic rainbow watching a bird soar. It's rad that E*Vax, one half of the group and director of the video, was reading our minds—probably with some power harnessed by playing guitar while on ayahuasca. Which is how we prefer to listen to Ratatat. Or do most things.
