2011, Italians Do It Better

VINYL FORMAT. Deluxe expanded edition! The ever-popular Night Drive CD, now expanded to fifteen tracks. The Chromatics (not to be confused with the Seattle group or the Southern country rock ensemble of the same name) have released two singles featuring their brand of new wave disco-punk on the Troubleman Unlimited imprint: Healer/Witness and the limited- edition "Nite" 12" are back but this time on Troubleman's kid brother Italians Do It Better. The lost side of the album is dark and abstract. Opening with the almost funereal "Shining Violence." Where detuned analog synths collide & struggle to hang onto a fading melody. Followed by the sleeper hit, "Circled Sun," and the Vangelis inspired reflection of life's duality in "The Gemini." Looking into a broken mirror, Ruth is more vulnerable than ever with the bare bones bass & vocal of "Bell." "Night Drive" closes with an arpeggiated musical refrain from the beginning of Side One. "Acelerator" reinterprates elements of "Night Drive's" chord progression while leaning heavily on the gear shift. As painted lines in the road begin to strobe, Chromatics propels full speed ahead into an uncertain future. Includes a lyric sheet insert.
