I Hooked Myself On You

I'm late to the Raveonettes bandwagon, but what a delightfully poppy and noisy bandwagon it is. I first heard Lust Lust Lust while browsing in Barnes & Noble - how often does that happen? I even asked what it was to make sure I didn't miss the goodness. The comparison to Jesus & Mary Chain is inevitable, although strictly speaking I do find the Raveonettes to be more in the Too Poppy vibe than JAMC.

Anyway, they provided an update via TheirSpace that they'll be hitting the studio soon:

Had a great creative talk with Sharin today and we’re so ready to make the best album to date! It’ll be released in September and we wanna do a proper studio album with a genius producer. There’s only so much you can do in your living room and let’s face it, whenever you pull out one of your favorite albums, it’ll stand the test of time because of a timeless sound, excellent production and songwriting. Now’s the right time for us to step it up…
And don't miss the few live dates they're playing before they hide themselves away to make their best album to date.
1.15.09 Boston, MA Paradise Rock Club
1.16.09 New York, NY Webster Hall

1.17.09 Washington, DC Black Cat
