It was a nice surprise to see a new album from The Raveonettes (my favorite Danish duo) drop with little notice. Drowned In Sound posted an exclusive interview with Sune Rose Wagner of The Raveonettes about it, which also includes a Spotify stream (with commentary!). Personally, I haven’t heard this version, but I may have found a link to download it when it dropped though it’s also on Rdio (if downloading isn’t your thing). I’m still debating on whether to order it on Amazon and whether to get Vinyl or CD, I do like giant sized artwork and photos.
Turns out Beyoncé isn’t the only one who can put out an album sans pre-release build-up. The Raveonettes decided to break the rules a little by announcing and releasing their new album, Pe’ahi, all in the same day, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83‘s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming),Pe’ahi explores a different sound for The Raveonettes. They create a new musical world, one with “choirs, harps, digital bit crushing, rhythmic changes, unconventional song structures, different ways of singing, staccato, machine gun guitar picking, and a somewhat schizophrenic universe,” according to frontman Sune Rose Wagner.
