about

Ratkiller’s newest musical riddle “Threnody to Smaug” – originally issued on a split tape with Danshoku Dino and limited to only ten copies – found it’s home at Serious Serious. Available both digitally and as limited tape edition.

The sense of worn-out psychedelia in Ratkiller’s music as well as his obsessions with all kinds of obscurities might ring many bells in listener’s imagination, but it is foremost the playful dialogue between “zeitgeist” and “obsolete”, the constant shifting of forms and their meanings, that leaves us wonder – how does something so unimportant and unsexy ends up being so stimulating and cool?

Mihkel Kleis (aka Ratkiller, Edasi, and most recently Court Rat) has been releasing music under numerous underground labels since late 90’s, witnessing and shaping the forming of Estonian experimental music scene, all of this while maintaining his distinctive and somewhat obviously unexpected approach.
