My Top 1000 Songs #520: Dead Sound

 [I've been writing up my Top 1000 songs on a daily basis--you can see them all in descending order by hitting the All My Favorite Songs tag.]

For this single off their third LP, 2007's Lust Lust Lust, the Raveonettes polish their post-Jesus and Mary Chain sonic blast, a smoother (yet still boisterous) sound meshed with gentler surf rock, sweetened with a resonating melody and captivating harmonies, resulting in a Pixies-like loud-soft-loud dynamic that holds your attention and has you humming along. Beautiful and bracing.
