Austin Psych Fest Album Primer

The Raveonettes

Chain Gang of Love (Columbia)

"Chains, black leather, and sex – yeah, it's not that complex." So purr Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo in "The Love Gang." Add "distortion," and that's essentially the blueprint for the Copenhagen duo's 2003 major-label debut. The album adds a soft layer of fuzz and hum to classic girl-group pop, spinning tight tales of delinquent love exclusively in B-flat major. Packaged like a Fifties biker movie, the cover nails it: "This is whiplash rock & roll." (Fri., 10pm, Reverberation stage)
