Chromatics : Running From The Sun

Johnny Jewel of the Chromatics assembled this wintry mixtape in the dark of night entitled “Running From The Sun”. This journey of a mixtape is built from tracks that were recorded from November 2009 to December 2011, all between hours of 4 and 6 a.m. This is the ideal mix to listen to in the dark let and let your mind drift away.

Music Go Music

Music Go Music is a LA based group signed to Secretly Canadian Records that sound like they are trapped in the late 70s, in every good way possible. They channel the likes of ABBA, ELO, Olivia Newton John, Giorgio Moroder, Sparks and other elements of disco and Italo (all music I am loving right now). It is amazing how they nailed the production/songwriting style. They take the best elements of this stylized and dated era of music and inject it with a new energy. This epic/power pop sound is what music needs right now.

“Warm in The Shadows” has a slinky/badass Italo vibe with a very ABBA-esque/Donna Summers’ whispery vocal sound. Reminds me of Italians Do It Better’s Chromatics.

Italo-Disco


Chromatics are on the New Jersey based label, Italians Do it Better. A label that is in love witht he classic Italo-Disco sound pioneered by Giorgio Moroder. The vocals on their tracks remind me of the sexy. whispery vocals of Donna Summer.

Simple and catchy, yet dark and sophisticated:
Chromatics – I Want You Love

This track reminds me off a “Shadowplay” by Joy Division especially the lead guitar. This is like a sexy Joy Division cover band
Chromatics – Healer

This track exemplifies the amazing Italian Baroque sense of melody that The Bloody Beetroots have just like past Italian disco greats, Rondo Veneziano. They are a versatile duo that I believe are going to do big things in the future.
