It’s been five years since Chromatics released their last album, 2007’s Night Drive. Now, the Portland dance-rock outfit is back with Kill For Love, released this past Monday on Italians Do It Better Records. And what’s more, they’ve made the entire album available to stream on Soundcloud.
The entire 90-minute album has been condensed into one lovely chunk, so you can vibe to the gauzy post-punk jams without having to stop and click on the play button seventeen times. Just two highlights in this mammoth LP include the New Order-esque “The Page” (at the 13 minute mark) and the thumping dance track “Lady” (at around 17:35). Take a nice hour-and-a-half and space out to Ruth Radelet’s smoky soprano. It’s the perfect soundtrack to mercurial spring nights. Check it out, below.
