mp3: download Chromatics – RUNNING FROM THE SUN mixtape


Chromatics just dropped a free new album/"mixed collage" of unreleased material from the Kill For Love sessions, featuring alternate versions of a few album tracks + a handful of entirely new songs. According to Chromatics/Glass Candy/Desire mastermind Johnny Jewel:

"After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we'd clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, & feel around in the dark...working our way through the atmospheric elements & peeling back layers of rhythm...throwing the songs into the abstract pile & playing them while driving home in the snow...

This is a lullaby for you...
Sweet Dreams!
Johnny Jewel"

download: Chromatics – Kill For Love (drumless version)


Chromatics have made a drumless version of their album-of-the-year contender Kill For Love available for free download. Says Johnny Jewel:

"I was really liking the way the vocal mixes sounded with no drums and I think that the drums on the album are so heavy, that it's interesting to hear the record as this almost-empty, almost-a cappella kind of thing...
