REVIEWLiberal use of backwards tape and a nostalgic electro-acoustic approach sum up the former's working method. Tones range from a rusty gate-hinge in need of WD40 to somebody shuffling boxes around while trying to tidy the garage. Rats With Wings brew up grainy, distant hums like vintage aeroplanes passing slowly in the night. There's not much to command your attention, proving without doubt there's high-quality droning and sub-standard droning.
