The Raveonettes – Gone Forever and D.R.U.G.S.


awwwww no we didn’t! awwww yeah we did! we’re totally on about this new raveonettes record, “in and out of control”. the LP, from which “gone forever” and “d.r.u.g.s.” are both excerpted, is one of our fav records of 2009. “in and out of control” sees the danish duo on, if not the best material of their career, the band’s best in several years. we like the raveonettes best at their more darker moments (ie. lust from 2007’s “lust lust lust” record). both “gone forever” and “d.r.u.g.s.” realize that darker, minor key, rhythmically driven, melodically syncopated sound; a sound that’s not only infinitely listenable but cool as fuck too. get into it.
