The Raveonettes just made your Tuesday, and your week, a whole lot better with Pe’ahi, the follow-up to 2012’s Observator.
I’m incapable of resisting hype, and I’ve even succumbed to the lure of the ridiculous album trailer. But this new full length from the Danish fuzzrockers slipped completely under my radar. Which is refreshing.
As is the first single, “Endless Sleeper.”
To think, just last night I was scratching my head trying to decide which new releases were worthy of my emusic credits. And in the morning I have this. The album title seems to be either a reference to a Hawaiian island of which I had no prior knowledge, or the Hawaiian word for “wave,” which I also had to look up. And now that I’m thinking about big, gorgeous sonic waves breaking on barroom beaches, I’m humming my favorite Crystal Stilts song at my desk.
And in typical Tuesday train of tunethought process, I’m now checking out what these guys are up to… And apparently they just recently released a new single, “Delirium Tremendous.” What marvelous serendipity.
I haven’t been to Bimbo’s in far too long. But I’m looking forward to seeing The Raveonettes in North Beach on September 28. And making a noisy-as-hell playlist for watching the waves crash against an Ocean Beach bonfire this weekend.
