Mixed Tapes: Ra Ra Riot

In Mixed Tapes on 05/31/2009 at 7:20 PM

For a band that describes their sound as a frothing cauldron of gruel, Ra Ra Riot is the antonym of dull. Their unique line-up of the traditional guitar, bass and drums amplified by cello and violin creates a skewed pop sound that blends a post punk energy with the symphonic melodies of a more melodic age. Although I might be guilty of favoritism, this band is undeniably more than worthy of a listen.

  1. Seem like a quality band….check out Los Campesinos! if you’ve never heard of them before….quite a few similarities!

  2. ra ra riot: you guys are amazing!
