premiere: Fort Romeau – “Jetée”

AFTER DARK 2 KITTY

Tracklist after the jump. Get it on iTunes. Physical copies apparently "on the way..." Italians Do It Better on the slight discrepancy between the tracklist that's been floating around and the final tracklist:

FOR EXAMPLE, "CHERRY" & "LOOKING FOR LOVE" WERE BOTH RECORDED & MIXED BEFORE "KILL FOR LOVE" WAS RELEASED...BUT HE THOUGHT THEY FIT AFTER DARK 2'S PURPOSE MORE"

mp3: Johnny Jewel – BLACK & WHITE / A MIX FOR AUTUMN

JOHNNY JEWEL AUTUMN

Here's an amazing/essential new mix for autumn from Glass Candy/Chromatics/SYMMETRY/Desire mastermind Johnny Jewel, featuring tracks from SYMMETRY, Glass Candy, Chromatics, Kraftwerk, Nico, and more. Johnny Jewel says:

"After looping the globe twice...We're finally back in Montreal for one of my favorite times of year. It's the end of Autumn, & all of the Reds, Greens, & Yellows have disintegrated into Black & White. Everything is buried by the snow...Perfect weather for locking yourself in the studio with a synthesizer & your favorite records...I put together a collage of songs that, for one reason or another...always remind me of Autumn.

Something Old.
Something New.
Something Borrowed.
Something Blue."
