The Raveonettes' Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo recently sat down to discuss their Vice Records debut Lust Lust Lust. The duo touched on the writing, recording, pitfalls, and successes of each of the album's twelve tracks. Today we're premiering the band's discussions of the first two songs on the album, "Aly, Walk With Me," and "Hallucinations".....
The new Mountain Goats album, Heretic Pride, is garnering critical accolades (including an 8.0 in Pitchfork today), all of them deserved. Not only is John Darnielle's songwriting stronger with every new release, but he seems more comfortable with the production and collaborating musicians (including St. Vincent's Annie Clark here). Look for an interview with Darnielle on Largehearted Boy tomorrow.
A Mountain Goats release alone would make it a great music release week for me, but there are plenty more quality discs I can recommend. Bon Iver received plenty of music blog love for the hauntingly beautiful For Emma, Forever Ago. I can also strongly recommend American Music Club's The Golden Age, Allison Moorer's Mockingbird, Flowers Forever's self-titled debut, Headlights' Some Racing, Some Stopping, Mike Doughty's Golden Delicious, Raveonettes' Lust Lust Lust, and Throw Me the Statue's Moonbeams from what I have already heard.
Yep Roc reissues a remastered edition of Nick Lowe's classic album, Jesus of Cool, this week.
Poetry and Beat generation fans will be excited to see Jack Kerouac & Steve Allen's three-disc Poetry For The Beat Generation available as a standalone purchase.
What new releases you picking up this week? What can you recommend? Have I left anything worthwhile off the list?
The Raveonettes @ Terminal 5, NYC - Jan 19, 2008 (Daniel Seb)
I am left with alot of thoughts about artistry from the experience. First, the amazing distinction between Blonde Redhead and the band prior, The Raveonettes. The band was fun, but the work was a little cheapened by one song that was pratically identical to The Beatles "Wanna Hold your Hand" in a different key. Seriously, everything except for the lyrics, from chords to vocal patternings. Whatever, I liked it anyway, but it escapes the memory faster for lack of originality. The band was also very presentational, tarted-up lead singer, barely looking at fellow members but completely oriented to the audience. Then Blonde Redhead came on. The focus of the audience magnified tenfold in reciprocation to the performers' concentration. Holy crap, I want that. I want to be that. So real and tangible, it's inescapable. Just them, raw and bare for the taking. I'm glad I was there. [says Isabella Bruno]School of Seven Bells also played the show Saturday night at Terminal 5.
The Raveonettes - now on Vice Records - have since announced a headlining show of their own at Bowery Ballroom (their "favorite NYC venue") on March 26th. The song "Dead Sound" (MP3 above, video below) is off their new record called Lust Lust Lust. It's out February 19th (on Vice). All tour dates (SXSW included), below...
