For what seems like forever now, rumors have been rife regarding a new RAVEONETTES record. Well, those rumors are on the verge of proving true. LUST LUST LUST will descend upon Europe on November 12. As for North America... AMAZON lists a March 4, 2008 date. So maybe that means something, or maybe it don't.
Whichever, Raveonettes fans should be forewarned that the new album features a bit of a different sound than previous releases. The churning, vintage-'50s guitar work is still present, but the tempos have been decelerated, and melody has at times been supplanted by deep, forbidding basslines and thunderous, repetitive percussion. If earlier Raveonettes' LPs mined a "garage-rock by way of ENNIO MORRICONE" vibe, this one tilts more toward "shoegaze by way of ANGELO BADALAMENTI." I'll leave it to you to decide if this is a change for the better or worse....
