Format: Audio CD
My last encounter with this talented Danish duo's music was with
their 2009 album 'In and Out Of Control'. I loved it and remain
convinced of their worth. The breathy vocals; the dense reverb;
their light-handed way with re-imagined sixties psychedelia, all
coalesce in in a highly refined set of nine engaging and memorable
new melodies. They have not moved too far away from their familiar
template (a case of "if it isn't broken don't try to fix it") but their
songwriting skills seem to have grown more mature and assured.

With tunes as affecting as 'Curse The Night', with its luminous vocal
harmonies; the beautifully layered refrain and jangling guitar of 'She
Owns The Streets' (where the spirits of The Mammas and The Pappas
seem to smile over their shoulders); the sweet and sour sentiments
of 'You Hit Me (I'm Down)' and the lovely 'Observations', it's hard
not to imagine ourselves transported back to The Summer Of Love.

Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner have delivered yet another little gem.

Highly Recommended.

Now I adore Whip It On but am still not convinced by their first few albums until In & Out Of Control and Raven In The Grave were released. The lacklustre overeliance on bubblegum was ditched for a slower, gothy sounds. Dense, knotty and seductive. Their new album, Observator builds on their past 2 albums with aplomb.
Reading some pieces about the album revealed that Sune Rose Wagner suffers from depression and you can certainly here it on this album as the sound continues to grow darker and droning pianos are added to the mix.
On the negative side the last few tracks dont quite carry on the high quality set down by the early tracks, with "Young And Cold" being a stunning album opener.
The Raveonettes are straying further away from their trademark "whiplash rock n roll" but their new sound is intoxicating.

Another album bought after hearing a track on the brilliant Radio 6Music. Apart from a couple of tracks, this is the usual mix of dense Raveonettes chording and fragile otherworldly vocals (meant in a good way). Well I like them as a group so this was money well spent.
