Excellent 2009 release from Desire, the Montreal group produced by Johnny Jewel. The moody cosmic disco sound of II still sounds great, and let’s not forget how perfect “Under Your Spell” was in the film Drive.
Another fine LP from Italians Do It Better, Kill For Love by Chromatics, is also back on split colored vinyl. Production is also handled by Mr. Jewel, and the emotive rock of “Lady,” “Back From The Grave,” “These Streets Will Never Look The Same,” and more are as #MOOD af as ever.
Lastly, here is the soundtrack to Ryan Gosling’s (seen La La Land yet?) directorial debut, Lost River. Once again, Johnny Jewel is behind the music, and the eclectic, vintage vibe is created with help from Chromatics, Desire, and Glass Candy.
