Italians Do It Better is releasing a couple of obscure, long out-of-print records today, including GLASS CANDY's 2006 I Always Say Yes LP on lavender marble vinyl with "5 unreleased outtakes & alternate mixes From the original tapes", and CHROMATICS' little-heard NITE LP, recorded in 2004-2005 before Ruth Radelet joined the band...
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.
