RATS ON RAFTS: “Where Is My Dream?” b/w “Meggy”: 7”

A-side is an odd, almost psychedelic number, reliant on reverb and some chilling background vocals. If you told me it was from one of those ’60s Nuggets comps, I wouldn’t bat an eye. The flip is fantastic—a kind of spooky garage number that ultimately revs up enough to sound like a coldwave band à la Lost Tribe or something. Not really sure how often I’ll play this, but there’s something about “Meggy” that I find really interesting and captivating. Also features a truly impressive die-cut cover, if you’re down with Medusa. There’s very little info included about this band, but the B-side is great. –Keith Rosson (Spazz)
