The garage rock revival has gotten so much press the last year that critics have had to invent the term New Garage to keep track of bands like The Strokes and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But before you decide to jump off this already overhyped bandwagon and go searching for the next big thing you should definitely check out The Raveonettes. ... Read More »
