Jeff's Weekly Pick: The Raveonettes @ Belly Up Thursday October 11, 2012
One of the hardest working bands, both touring and in the
studio, are Danish indie rockers The Raveonettes. Hard to believe the band
recently released their sixth full length, Observator, to very favorable
reviews. While the band is famous for its signature sound of fuzzy guitars
droning along simple chord songs, their latest release shows a much softer sound from
the outset. There is no mistaking the familiar heavier sounds as the album
comes to its conclusion. It is always interesting when a band attempts new
things, and even better when the result is successful. The vocal harmonies
of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharon Foo provide the key to what makes this group
click. If you have never experienced them live, your chance to see them perform songs from their latest album as well as back catalog comes this Thursday
at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. This promises to be a memorable night for those in attendance. Tickets can be purchased here.
Please make sure to arrive early for the opening band, Melody's Echo Chamber, fronted by Parisian Melody Prochet. Her eponymous album is excellent, filled with catchy dream pop songs.
