DOWNLOAD: The Raveonettes - Come On Santa (MP3)
DOWNLOAD: The Raveonettes Remixed - a free EP (ZIP FILE)


The Raveonettes have already found themselves on one year-end list for their full-length Lust Lust Lust. This year, the band also released four digital-only EPs (all on Vice Records), including a free remixes EP (ZIP file above) and, most recently, a just-in-time-for-your-ugly-holiday-sweater-party MP3 collection called Wishing You A Rave Christmas. (Here, with a bonus track, on Amazon.) No strangers to holiday music, in 2004, the Raveonettes also contributed an original holiday tune, "The Christmas Song," to the soundtrack of the Tim Allen/Jamie Lee Curtis holiday flick Christmas with the Kranks.

The Raveonettes will headline a NYC show at Webster Hall show on Friday, January 16th (Tickets) with openers Nickel Eye (feat. Strokes' bassist Nikolai Fraiture). Their two Cali dates will feature the recently renamed Soft Pack.

Vice Records is also offering a free holiday-time, but not holiday-themed comp, with tracks from King Khan, Chromeo and the Black Lips.

Anyone know what time Ravonettes go on? Webster Hall didn't know jack about times or openers (not until Fri, supposedly).
