God bless you Johnny Jewel.

Sometimes the best feels are those you can’t put into words and you have to let be. So let this just be and enjoy Chromatics covering New Order’s “Ceremony” <3
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 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.
Totally ABBA meets ELO.
