The Raveonettes return

The sleek and black-clad duo of The Raveonettes, one of the consistently best live bands that I’ve seen, are back with a new album, Raven in the Grave, to be released April 5 on Vice Records. Singer/guitarist Sharin Foo characterizes the mood of the new album as one of “ethereal defiance”; it’s as good a feeling as any for the first single, “Forget That You’re Young,” which adds a spacious echo and sense of fleeting sadness to the band’s unique surf-noir sound. Get it below, then make sure to check them out live this spring.
