No time for time lapse

Another music related post as the weather has been abysmal and i have had obscene amounts of University work, therefore no skating has been accomplished or will be for the foreseeable future..

Two bands for anyone reading this to listen to are ‘Spoon’ and ‘The Raveonettes’ (Thanks to george for clearing up my confusion regarding the danish duo that are The Raveonettes!)

Spoon hail from Austin, Texas, and have just released their 6th LP, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. You have probably heard them before on various TV shows etc but dont let that put you off. They consistently kill it on each record.

I had ‘The Raveonettes’ confused with the awful ‘Noisettes’ for quite some time, it was probably the ‘ettes’ bit on the end that got me.. Anyway, Raveonettes are a man and woman from Denmark and create music akin to early Shoegaze stuff a la My Bloody valentine and co. They released their 3rd LP ‘Lust Lust Lust’ earlier this year and its one of the best albums I have heard all year. Get on it!
