"I Know You Want The Candy"

So, today is Halloween, which means 2 things: I'm currently dressed up as a lion, and will continue to be so for the remainder of the day, and The Raveonettes are playing a show in Denver and, because of other responsibilities, I can't go and am, therefore, kind of bummed.

The new Raveonettes album, Lust, Lust, Lust, is beyond good. It might be because I'm all of a sudden in a Velvet Underground-y mood, but I'm thinking it's more because the new album is freaking unbelievably well composed, everything more spot on than all but about 2 albums released this year. The feedback is magnificently manufactured, the vocals are hopelessly haunting, and other such alliterations that allude to the fact that this album is not only their best, but one of the best albums of the year. And I have to miss their show tonight. Bum ... mer. Oh well. If you have a chance, see them, if you can't, then see them next time ... you'll be sure to spot me there.

Some tunes off of Lust, Lust, Lust, the new album:
The Raveonettes - Hallucinations
The Raveonettes - Black Satin
The Raveonettes - You Want The Candy
