New Releases: Linkin Park, Raveonettes, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Beth Orton, ‘Underworld’ Soundtrack & More

The Raveonettes are back on the chain gang again, the Chain Gang of Love, that is. The group’s major-label debut will lead with the single “That Great Love Sound,” and a dark video shot by Sophie Muller (Coldplay, Radiohead) in which the Danish duo try to kill each other.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club follow up their 2001 debut, B.M.R.C, with Take Them On, On Your Own, a rock record through and through, best seen on “Stop” and “Six Barrel Shotgun.”

Linkin Park reissue their “Frat Party at the Pancake Festival,” a DVD of the group’s videos from Hybrid Theory, including “Crawling” and “Points of Authority,” as well as concert footage and a peek into a day in the life of Linkin Park.

Jeff Buckley re-releases Live at Sin-e, except this time the album contains more than two more hours of music than the original, plus a bonus DVD featuring more music and a poem by Buckley. The extended version of the album features Buckley covering Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and Nina Simone.

Beth Orton finds herself on The Other Side of Daybreak, a remix album of last year’s Daybreaker. Orton’s music gets tinkered with by the likes of the Chemical Brothers and Roots Manuva.

The soundtrack to “Party Monster,” the upcoming film starring Macaulay Culkin as nightclub kingpin turned murderer Michael Alig, features “The La La Song” by Marilyn Manson, “Seventeen” by Ladytron, and such classic dance songs as Stacy Q’s “Two of Hearts” and Shannon’s “Give Me Tonight.”

Finally, the soundtrack to the vampire flick “Underworld” mostly features new songs including material by Wes Borland, John Frusciante, A Perfect Circle and David Bowie.
