The Raveonettes - Sometimes They Drop By

Another bit of MP3 credit from Amazon, another Raveonettes digital-only EP. I didn't like this quite as much as Beauty Dies, but it's another enjoyable four song set from the Danish rock band. The style here is closer to shoegaze, with lots of buzzing and droning as opposed to distinct melodies. The only problem I really have is that I just don't like the song "Blood Red Leis" much. The title track is a pretty engrossing, soothing number, the opener has a lot of energy, and the final song "Vintage Future" is the most like a traditional song, with a nice, old fashioned guitar line carrying it through to the end. This was actually released before the first EP I got, and it's probably just as good an introduction to the duo's style.
