The Raveonettes – “Killer In The Street” Video

Earlier this summer, Danish feedback-pop duo the Raveonettes released a new album called Pe’ahi with no advance notice. They’re now getting around to making videos for the album, and those videos are flirting with retro imagery and bloody violence.

The Raveonettes – “Endless Sleeper” Video (NSFW) (Stereogum Premiere)

Last week, the Raveonettes surprised us all by releasing the new album Pe’ahi without any prior notice. The album opens with the blaring, aggressive synth-rock of “Endless Sleeper,” and today you can watch that song’s very creepy music video, directed by the band’s Sune Rose Wagner. It begins with a long shot of a pair… More »

Today, with no advance notice, Danish narco-rock duo the Raveonettes released Pe’ahi, their seventh album, out into the world. The album is named for a Maui surfing hotspot, and band member Sune Rose Wagner says, “It’s about a horrific near-drowning experience I had in Hawaii some years ago.” On the album, the band worked with… More »

The Raveonettes – “Curse The Night” Video

In the Raveonettes’ video for the fuzzily romantic Observator cut “Curse The Night,” two little kids dress up as drummer boys and lead a youngster mob through inky black-and-white streets. Things then take a surprisingly villainous turn that I don’t want to spoil. Watch the video and check out a (long) statement from the Danish… More »

Fuzz and reverb fanatics packed into the Belly Up Tavern to witness The Raveonettes unleash their tunes from their latest album Observator.

Watch The Raveonettes Play Letterman

The Raveonettes are evidently so confident in their luxuriant zonked-out glamor that they don’t see any reason to stand up when they’re on TV. Last night, the band rolled out their Observator single “She Owns The Streets” on the Late Show With David Letterman, and they spent their entire onstage time perched on their ow… More »

The Raveonettes – “She Owns The Streets” Video

The Raveonettes’ new video for their shimmery fuzzpop song “She Owns The Streets” takes the lyrics pretty literally. It consists almost entirely of distorted camcorder-style footage of a girl who appears to spend all her time dancing in New York streets. Peter Kaaden directs. Watch it below. More »

The Raveonettes – “Observations”

The Raveonettes have been working with producer Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, the Go-Go’s) on their sixth record, and today the first single from the new album, Observator, emerged.

The Raveonettes – “Let Me On Out” Video

The entire video for the Raveonettes’ romantic reverb-awash “Let Me On Out” consists of old-timey black-and-white close-ups of the two Raveonettes. When your band is good-looking enough, I suppose you can get away with something like that. Watch the video below. More »

The Raveonettes Cover The Stone Roses

The Cass Bird & Molly Schiot-directed video for the Raveonettes’ cover of the Stone Roses’ 1989 debut opener “I Wanna Be Adored” starts with and returns to a pair of clunky green Doc Marten boots — a personal detail of the younger half of the clip’s odd couple, true, and this whole thing was put… More »

Coachella 2010: Die Antwoord, Major Lazer, Flying Lotus

On Friday, James Murphy dedicated “Losing My Edge” to Gil Scott-Heron. For the rest of the weekend, everyone should be covering “Communication Breakdown” and dedicating it to AT&T. Not being able to meet up with your friends because of long delayed texts does cultivate a certain independent spirit, though, and partying with strangers wasn’t a… More »

DāM-FunK Covers Human League For Dr. Martens’ 50th

Dr. Martens are celebrating their 50th anniversary with a digital ad campaign designed to remind you that rock stars wear Dr. Martens. This didn’t work so well last time around. But this time they’re doing something that directly involves musicians by having 10 (or 9, really) young bands do ten covers of nu-classics. Each cover… More »

New Raveonettes Video – “Last Dance”

I’ve already mentioned this, but it bears repeating: The Raveonettes fourth album In And Out Of Control taps a J&MC/Phil Spector/Distortion hybrid, but it’s Stephin Merritt I think of most because of the cheekily dark lyrics in “Suicide,” “Boys Who Rape (Should All Be Destroyed),” and this one, “Last Dance.” The video for the sock-hopper… More »

New Raveonettes – “Last Dance”

Sonically, the Raveonettes forthcoming fourth album In And Out Of Control reminds me of Jesus & Mary Chain, Phil Spector, and Magnetic Fields’ Distortion in equal measure. (As far as the darkly cheeky lyrics go, it’s pure Merritt.) You can draw your own comparisons from the cathartic sock-hopping “Suicide” as well as the provocatively titled… More »

New Raveonettes – “Suicide”

The Raveonettes fourth album In And Out Of Control finds the Danish duo in a particularly poppy mood musically, while pushing the lyrical content into darker corners. As the band’s male half Sune Rose Wagner put it:

It’s a strange mixture of modern and old, dark and happy, it’s about rape, violence, lost love,… More »

Siren Festival 2009 In Photos

The Voice’s annual indie rock fest gave audiophiles the second good reason to visit Coney Island last week, bringing out everyone from Spank Rock to Future Of The Left to Built To Spill on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
