ALBUM DOWNLOAD: Chromatics - Running From The Sun
Sure, Chromatics' opus Kill For Love stretches nearly 80 minutes, but group leader Johnny Jewel knows that the group's fans can never get enough icy, atmospheric pop to crush on. That's why he just dropped an extras record called Running From The Sun, which features another 35-minute journey with an experimental, cutting-room bent to it. "Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 & 6 a.m. 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," he wrote while giving away the album. "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." And well, that pretty much nails it. Download away.
