Chromatics – “In Films”

We still don’t know when narco-disco overlords Chromatics will release Dear Tommy, their much-anticipated Kill For Love follow-up, into the world. But we have heard a couple of new songs, “Just Like You” and “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around.” And now, the group has shared a third tune. Compared to most Chromatic… More »

Glass Candy – “Shell Game”

Glass Candy is one of the many musical groups that Johnny Jewel has a hand in. His latest project is the soundtrack to a new Ryan Gosling-directed film called Lost River, and so far he’s shared “love theme” “Yes” by the Chromatics and his ambient Johnny Jewel solo track “Bullytown.” Today we get “Shell Game,”… More »

Chromatics – “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around”

Sometime very soon, Chromatics are planning to release their new album Dear Tommy, the follow-up to 2012’s great Kill For Love. We’ve posted first single “Just Like You,” and now they’ve shared “I Can Never Be Myself When You’re Around.” It’s a song worthy of this group’s dark glamor, a glittering and nodded-out piece of… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Yesterday, we woke up with a new broody Drake short film to watch with breakfast, and by bedtime, we had a new broody Drake mixtape to listen to over sleepy tea. If those 17 songs had dropped Wednesday instead, we’d likely be talking about one of them below. But we’ll get to Drake next week. More »

Chromatics – “Yes (Love Theme From Lost River)”

Last year, Portland-based electro-pop outfit Chromatics announced that they would be releasing a new album titled Dear Tommy in 2015. But their latest track, “Yes,” won’t be on it. The song was written for Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, Lost River, which is due out in April and was scored by Johnny Jewel of Chromatics, Symmetry,… More »

Chromatics – “White Light”

A truly beautiful new Chromatics song has emerged to usher us into the weekend. “White Light” sounds like its title suggests, all soft tones and ethereal glimmers. Ruth Radelet’s sighing melodies here might as well be moonbeams. It’s a gorgeous piece of work; we owe Johnny Jewel our gratitude for continuing to clear out hisMore »

Johnny Jewel – “The Last Dance”

Johnny Jewel is the producer behind evocative, cinematic electro-pop acts like Chromatics and Glass Candy, and he’s never released a track under his own name until now. Jewel has lately been sharing unreleased tracks like an 8-track demo version of Chromatics’ “At Your Door,” and one of his latest gifts is a haunted, string-laden instrumental… More »

Chromatics – “At Your Door” (8-Track Demo Version)

Chromatics have kept relatively quiet since dropping their massive synth-pop opus, Kill For Love, on the world in 2012. That still hasn’t changed, but band member Johnny Jewel has spent the last couple of weeks uploading rarities and various odds and ends to his Soundcloud. Today, he’s gifted us with an old demo version of… More »

Schoolboy Q – “Man Of The Year”

Right about now, Kendrick Lamar is tangling with GQ over his portrayal in the magazine’s Man Of The Year issue. And through some weird cosmic confluence, Kendrick’s Black Hippy comrade Schoolboy Q has a new song called “Man Of The Year” — a song completely unrelated to Kendrick’s issues with GQ. Q debuted a snippet… More »

Chromatics – “Red Car”

Scion has the inarguable distinction of being the car company that’s given away more good free music than any other car company, so it makes some kind of sense that the company is celebrating its 10th anniversary by giving away a new compilation called Scion 10, one that includes new music from people like the… More »
