Last Night: The Raveonettes And Tamaryn At Fitzgerald's

The Raveonettes, Tamaryn Fitzgerald's April 13, 2011

Oh man, did any of you go to that Tamaryn show Wednesday night at Fitzgerald's? Yeah, we think that The Raveonettes might have been there as well.

First, let's talk Tamaryn. It's a neo shoegaze/dreampop band fronted by the shaggy-haired Tamaryn, originally from New Zealand. Our little brother first put us onto the group sometime in early 2010, specifically to a song called "Mild Confusion."

We listened to their debut EP, The Waves, months after we finally wore out that song. It's a great EP; My Bloody Valentine meets Mazzy Star meets Beach House. Tamaryn's voice sounds like that of Hope Sandoval's - breathy but clear, and just a pitch lower.
