Rock noir

If you do one thing on Tuesday, make it buying the new Raveonettes album, "Lust, Lust, Lust." And with a name like that, how could it be bad? It's been out for like two months overseas but finally comes to our shores this week. In my opinion it's easily the best album so far this year.

I still don’t know how Sun Rose Wagner tunes his geetar to sound like it does but it sounds fantastic. And personally, if a six-foot tall Danish chick is playing bass, I’m listening.

Theirs is the music I imagine people in the late fifties and early sixties would have listened to up in the Hollywood Hills. Or people in February 2008 for that matter.

Check out the video for “Dead Sound.” Even their video is a little noir-ish.

Also of serious, serious note are the songs “Lust”, “Black Satin” and the amazing “With my eyes closed.” Here's the song at least, if not a proper video.
