An intoxicating, noisy raspberry swirl of lust, one-night stands, their moral consequences and a painful break-up throbs at the center of The Raveonettes’ latest (and most accessible) dalliance with pop-noir and fuzz. Sune Rose Wagner and cohort Sharin Foo get naked in more ways than one as they go on a blinder of a bender with the wild side (“Aly Walk With Me”) “Blush” with post-coital fever, confusion and vulnerability, and pick up the tossed and tattered pieces of a broken relationship and its emotional wreckage (“Expelled From Love”). Lust, Lust, Lust is The Raveonettes at their most honest, unforgettable, and maudlin. The vocals feel as murky as the nuances of relationships do, but the blur, the sweet rush of hormones, the good vibrations…it’s all a luscious treasure of pleasure and pain; a candy cocktail undertow of cohesion and cocaine to drown your sorrows and desires in.
