The title of “Aly Walk With Me,” the lead track from The Raveonettes forthcoming release, Lust Lust Lust, sounds so innocent. I imagined hand holding, star gazing, and maybe a good night kiss between lovers. Instead, there’s a murky, mesmerizing bass line, and shards or wrecked guitar piercing through each verse, driving home the point that this isn’t a precious moment. Is there jealousy? Maybe. Desire? More likely. Should Aly reconsider going on that walk down the New York streets? All signs point to yes.
