Italians Do It Better Reissues on Colored Vinyl

Desire II Green Colored Vinyl LP


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.

Chromatics Kill For Love Split Colored Vinyl 2LP


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.

Both Chromatics seeing Clear wax reissues, Kill For Love and Night Drive are producer Johnny Jewels’ crowning achievements truly showcasing his now honed in skill of producing albums that should have been your favorite underground Synth Pop Not Pop albums in the 80s. These are the kinds of things your older cousin had that you thought was weird but you “got it” when you finally became their age.

Desire is a group out of Montreal that creates music in the same style we have come to love from Chromatics / IDIB camp, moody synth excursions that can soundtrack Stevie Nicks home video tapes. Some of you might recognize the track “Under Your Spell” from a little movie called Drive starring some guy named Ryan Gosling.

Italians Do It Better

Symmetry Themes For An Imaginary Film (Chromatics) 3LP Italians Do It Better

With all the rumors going around that Johnny Jewel’s Symmetry project was supposed to be the soundtrack for Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive we were stoked when we finally got the vinyl for Themes For An Imaginary Film in. The producer has out done himself with this latest effort. It might challenge your expectations, but it’s definitely worth picking up. Italians Do It Better has also reissued Chromatics’ Night Drive and Kill For Love. The latter of which was supposed to have been repressed on ice blue vinyl, but from what we have seen so far we got part of the small batch was repressed on the original magenta color. All these titles are great additions to your collection.
