Self-confident and ambitious, the Raveonettes entered the garage rock race of the new millennium with a stylish, brassy sound not heard since Sonic Youth's Daydream Nation. Sune Rose Wagner (guitar, vocals) and Sharin Foo (bass, vocals) hail from Copenhagen and formed the Raveonettes out of dismay for their homeland's state of music. - Artist Direct
The Black Angels
The Black Angels are a psychedelic rock band from Austin, Texas, formed in May 2004. Their name derives from the Velvet Underground song ?The Black Angel?s Death Song?.
Hannah Levin?s review of the Black Angels album Passover described them as ?Walking in the shadows cast by Spacemen 3 and Spiritualized mastermind Jason Pierce? and compared them to The Warlocks and Black Mountain, also invoking ?dirges? reminiscent of both The Velvet Underground and the 13th Floor Elevators. The band?s icon is a stylized image of Nico.
In December 2007, the group announced on their blog that their second album will be released in Spring of 2008. In March 2008 a release date of May 13th was announced for their second album, Directions To See A Ghost.
