I’ve been a lukewarm fan of The Raveonettes off and on for a few years now. But I was totally blown away by last year’s Raven in the Grave (in fact, it was my Album of the Year). It wasn’t that I didn’t like their “Everly Brothers meets Jesus and Mary Chain” sound from before. Raven was just different: less “early rock and roll meets buzzing guitars”, more dark.
But the duo are back, and they’ve brought their 1950s sound with them. Into the Night is their new 4-track EP, and my favorite song from it is “Night Comes Out”. Check it out:
Last.fm says I’ve listened to the song 15 times since March 25th… but I swear that’s way too low. I think I’ve listened to it 15 times in the past two days!
