With Pretty in Black, the heretofore noisy Danish duo does away with the guitar racket, leaving us with what sounds like a collection of freshly minted oldies. The pair's faithful cover of the Angels' 1963 hit ''My Boyfriend's Back'' sets the tone, and moody originals like ''Sleepwalking'' recapture that early-'60s girl-group vibe nicely. Former Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker and ex-Ronette Ronnie Spector are among the guests. Which reminds us: Need a mnemonic to remind you what this album is like? Just take the ave out of Raveonettes.
