New Release: The Raveonettes - Raven in the Grave + MP3


"Forget That You're Young" is the newest track from The Raveonettes' third record for Vice titled, Raven in the Grave -- this album drops on April 5.

We at Stark have been big champions of the band since picking up a copy of Lust Lust Lust, then subsequently fawning over their follow up, In and Out of Control (my #2 record of 2009.) The above track seems like a large departure from the goings-on of In and Out -- what we hear here is a bit more restraint and melancholy. While a far cry from "Bang!" or "Last Dance," we are super excited to hear more from this new record. Keep your finger on the pulse people.

Strong album, wonderfully atmospheric, moody and dark pop, pulling a fairly wide range of influences into something coherent and different. Full review at http://www.kammentary.com/2011/04/first-impressions-raven-in-grave-by.html
