Raveonettes to re-launch in Boston, release free X-mas MP3

Last we heard, the Raveonettes had taken time off for Sharin Foo to have a baby -- and sponsoring their maternity leave by releasing a stack of digital EPs while plotting a transformation from Jesus-and-Mary-Chain-ish mega-garage duo to Justice-y dancefloor obliterators. Or whatever it is that happens to rock bands after they sign to Vice. In any case, maternity leave is over. They've just migrated back to their Chiffonsy roots by releasing an honest-to-god Christmas song (grab it below), and announced plans for a US tour that'll kick off right here in Boston just after the new year. You can see 'em at the Paradise on January 15; in case you can't remember what they sound like, we're also html-ing in a stream of their performance at our 2005 Best Music Poll concert, courtesy of this newfangled audio archive we've launched over at
