CHROMATICS - NIGHT DRIVE (BLUE VINYL)
15 tracks of largely song-based American takes on dreamlike, sensual Euro-disco. Ruth Radelet's breathy vocals on Night Drive are double tracked like visible breath in crisp air, hanging over a picked guitar melody and frosted glass synths. Contains a translucent cover of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" and then turns oddly darker with horror film ambience on "The Killing Spree." The culmination of the album is the hit song of flanged beat box ticks and dense howl of organ chords on "Tick Of The Clock" (featured on the 2011 Drive Soundtrack starring Ryan Gosling). Double lp, very limited pressing of NEW 180 gram BLUE vinyl.


TRACKLISTING:  01. THE TELEPHONE CALL 02. NIGHT DRIVE 03. I WANT YOUR LOVE 04. RUNNING UP THAT HILL 05. KILLING SPREE 06. HEALER 07. MASK 08. TOMORROW IS SO FAR AWAY 09. LET'S MAKE THIS A MOMENT TO REMEMBER 10. TICK OF THE CLOCK 11. SHINING VIOLENCE 12. CIRCLED SUN 13. BELL 14. THE GEMINI 15. ACCELERATOR

DESIRE - DESIRE (180 GR BUBBLEGUM VINYL)
Montreal based Desire is blissed out Euro disco featuring Johnny Jewel on synth and guitars, (Chromatics, Glass Candy) Nate Walker on drums, (Chromatics) and hot as glass, Montreal singer, Megan-Louise. What sets Johnny Jewel's great production style apart from so many others is his reluctance to use computers and new equipment in both production and live performance, thus giving the music and analog quality that is infinitely more arresting than most contemporary disco counterparts. Features the hit song "Under Your Spell" which was on the Original Soundtrack for 2011's Drive (film featuring Ryan Gosling). Limited pressing of CLEAR VINYL.


TRACKLISTING:  01. MONTRE MOI TON VISAGE 02. MIRROIR MIRROIR 03. DON'T CALL 04. DANS MES REVES 05. UNDER YOUR SPELL 06. COLORLESS SKY 07. IF I CAN'T HOLD YOU 08. PART II

GLASS CANDY - B/E/A/T/B/O/X (PINK VINYL)
REPRESSED finally on PINK Vinyl - What starts out with an intro where singer Ida No sounds like she came straight out of Jane Fonda's Workout, telling you to "Keep going/You're doing good/Work that Body," soon turns into an album full of electro/disco/funk-filled beats that were made for dancing. B/E/A/T/B/O/X is somewhat reminiscent of early Prince and Madonna, which gives this retro sounding album familiarity, while being refreshingly new. There's a very frosty, uniquely done cover of Kraftwerk's "Computer Love." The album ends on a high note with "Digital Versicolor", a heavy driving synth beat (also featured in Nicolas Winding Refn's 2008 film Bronson) that is reminiscent of Tron or Knight Rider.


TRACKLISTING:  01. INTRODUCTION 02. BEATIFIC 03. ETHERIC DEVICE 04. CANDY CASTLE 05. ROLLING DOWN THE HILLS 06. LIFE AFTER SUNDOWN 07. COMPUTER LOVE (KRAFTWERK COVER) 08. LAST NITE I MET A COSTUME 09. DIGITAL VERSICOLOR

SIMONETTI, MIKE & JOHNNY JEWEL - ALBUTEROL
Mike Simonetti and Johnny Jewel sift through crates and crates of records whittling down 80 tracks into 10. The end result runs the length of Disco, Rock, Proto house, Swedish Glam, Bizarre old Italo, Soul and some even odder things in between. The entire mix was then slightly pitched down for a heavier affect. 50 minutes of great music. A Perso records compilation.
