This track from their new album, Observator, is pretty mind-blowing. They seem to have replaced black-and-white B-movie noir for witchy post-hippie Hotel California noir. It’s only fitting that it was recorded at L.A.’s Sunset Sound, where The Rolling Stones mixed Let It Bleed given that this song has all the satanic majesty of “Gimme Shelter.” It makes the ghost of electricity howl in the bones of your face. You have been warned. We have a pair of tickets to see The Raveonettes @UnionTransfer tomorrow night to give away to the 20th reader to sign up for our mailing list. The sign up window is just to the right of this post at the bottom of the masthead. (Don’t worry, we will never share or sell your email address, unless you do something really bad on national television and the cops make us eat saltines under hot lights until we crack, because, we must admit, we would not hold up long under those circumstances.) Good luck and godspeed, man!
