Slaraffenland Covers The Raveonettes And More!

Slaraffenland, whose name means “The Land of Milk and Honey,” has been popping up everywhere as of late! They just released their new album We’re On Your Side through Hometapes two days ago, and they are wrapping up North American touring run alongside Akron/Family. Those lucky enough to catch the band this year (possible at Team Clermont’s SXSW showcase) know that it is more of an experience than just a performance.

With recent posts in blogs like Brooklyn Vegan, and Stereogum, praise of this band is continuing to spread. Slaraffenland and their track That Great Love Sound (Raveonettes Cover) were both featured this week on the “What’s Hot” lists at Elbows.

La Blogotheque recently featured this three-part video segment of Slaraffenland:
