Chromatics
Shadow

Re-press of Chromatics 2015 single Shadow. The track should appeal to anyone who enjoys Chromatics’ 80’s-synth-pop-remembered-through-a-nostalgic-haze sound. And if you do like Shadow, this is the release for you: it contains five different versions, plus extra track ‘White Li...view item »

Chromatics
Camera

Johnny Jewel cranks out his umpteenth collection of synth nouveau-noir in the form of the latest Chromatics release. It’s a bit of an odds-and-sods collection is the Camera EP. The eight-song track listing consists of two newbies, three versions of the title track (the original of which originally...view item »

Desire
Under Your Spell

As much as I enjoyed the film Drive, I'm not sure I can forgive the wave of bands flatly imitating its soundtrack that followed its release. That said, the film's own soundtrack still holds up. Under Your Spell by Desire was part of that soundtrack, and appears here with...view item »

Invisible Conga People
Cable Dazed

Something infinitely more digestible than the Tiedye 12" on Italians Do It Better is a 12" Invisible Congo People. 'Cable Dazed' is a slinky little number with a very classic euro sound. It's a deep late night house/disco/ downtempo hybrid. A low tempo 4/4 kick sits neatly beneath shimmering synths. The whole thing sparkles with a classy,...view item »

Johnny Jewel
Themes For Television

He’s prolific, that Johnny Jewel. Despite running Italians Do It Better and being in Chromatics, he still manages to find time to turn out an impressive amount of solo material. No sooner has the dust settled on Jewel’s January LP Digital Rain than we get Themes For Tele...view item »

Chromatics
Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Chromatics are a hypnotic electronic four-piece from Portland. Part of an impressive string of 2015 releases, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun is their synthpop exploration of the 1983 Cyndi Lauper hit. The record contains four slightly different versions of the same cover, plus three instrumentals. Rele...view item »

Tess Roby
Beacon

Tess Roby’s debut LP Beacon, out via Italians Do It Better (Chromatics, Glass Candy), is a well-wrought collection of electronic ballads. Bringing to mind a more considered and nuanced version of Zola Jesus, Roby’s poised vocals dovetail wit...view item »

Johnny Jewel
Digital Rain

Just six months after Windswept, which featured some of his memorable contributions to the latest Twin Peaks series, Mr. Jewel’s ready with the next batch. The concept of Digital Rain is to evoke precipitation, which Johnny doubtless experiences little of in Los Angeles, and to convey liquid structures. Expect lo...view item »

Johnny Jewel
Home (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Johnny Jewel’s notable soundtrack work to date includes Drive, Lost River, and Those Who Kill. Here we have his soundtrack to Fien Troch’s Home. On gorgeous limited vinyl, one side is entirely his solo cinematic 80s ambience, backing a mix of tracks with some of hi...view item »

Chromatics
In The City

Italians Do It Better here bring back an excellent 2010 EP by Chromatics. In The City contains 12” and instrumental versions of the title track, plus a brace of originals and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s majestic ‘I’m On Fire’. Total woozy late-night 80’s synth vibe...view item »

Johnny Jewel
A Beautiful Now

Johnny Jewel has worked on the soundtracks for Drive, Lost River, and Those Who Kill. Here he has done the music to A Beautiful Now, the debut film from Daniela Amavia by dipping into his large roster of projects including Glass Candy, Desire,...view item »

Chromatics
Nite

'Nite' surfaced ten years ago to too few pairs of ears, so is very much welcome back on a new CD and LP release. This mini album takes cues from Miss Kittin's electro-pop workouts but treads far into contemporary disco and Italo, never letting go of the sultriness that gives it its dark, irresistible character....view item »

Glass Candy
I Always Say Yes

Italo reissue, originally recorded just over ten years ago, showing off the best aspects of a genre enjoying a continued refresher. This represents the less bombastic style, rooted more firmly in older Patrick Cowley-esque disco hits but with all the romantic drama found in Italo's most endearing examples....view item »

Desire
II

Definitely one of my highlights of 2009, such a grower. It features one of the most addictive tracks ever released, Under you spell, and you need this. Johnny Jewel for president! ...view item »

Heaven
Lonesome Town

Heaven are a typically Italians Do It Better group, produced by the label’s bossman Johnny Jewel. Shiny synth-pop with super-melancholy vocals is the name of the game, and Heaven get it so right it's almost Lynchian. Lonesome Town is their five track debut release...view item »

Various
Cruise Control

Listen in to Johnny Jewel’s package of highlights for the summer, all carefully picked out from the 2017 release roster of the Italians Do It Better label. Cruise Control features seventy-nine minutes premium smooth-synth material from Chromatics, Nite Jewel and Glass Cand...view item »

Johnny Jewel
Windswept

Johnny Jewel’s dark disco has adorned many soundtracks including Drive and Lost River. His new album features a load of unreleased solo material, including few of his works for the third season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks. Includes a couple tracks with his groups De...view item »

The Chromatics
Night Drive

Chromatics' 2007 album Night Drive is synthy perfection. The album follows a loose concept of going on a night drive (thus the clever title) and while listening to this, you can imagine the entire journey. Johnny Jewel, the musical genius behind this album, is also responsible for a handful of tracks on your favo...view item »

Chromatics
Cherry

Synthpop? Post-punk revival? Italo disco? Italo disco revival?!?! Whatever you want to call it, Chromatics' brand of smooth, atmospheric electronic music is full of unique character and flair. 2015 release Cherry offers chunky beats, 80s-sounding synths and sweet, wintry vocals. Released as Vinyl ...view item »

Chromatics
Just Like You

Chromatics' 6-track 2015 release Just Like You is a half-hour journey through a lush synthetic landscape. The high-quality finesse of Johnny Jewel's production adds to and enhances the record's glossy beats, haunting vocals and reverberant soundscapes. Available as Vinyl 12" on...view item »

Johnny Jewel

The Chromatics
Kill for Love

Chromatics' Kill for Love is the latest record by the label Italians Do It Better and this album does not disappoint. Following the 2007 album Night Drive, Chromatics continue their domination of music with this album. Sounds like a slow dance at a disco with the most a...view item »

Rubies (featuring Feist)
I Feel Electric Tyedye Mix

Unsure about this Italians Do It Better label. I reckon it's a bit...dubious. That Invisible Conga People 12" thang was sublime, really trippy, but this new job by Rubies Ft. Feist is perplexing me slightly. I like the pulsing heavenly vibe about it & could imagine tapping my footsies after a couple of shandies but i'd rather just get my S...view item »

Glass Candy
B/E/A/T/B/O/X

Glass Candy are apparently the next big thing. Here's their CD called B/E/A/T/B/O/X which is a load of electro disco cheese. I think it's probably very good for what it is but I can't quite get my head around it as I hate the sounds they use to make their music. I suspect if you like earlier Adult but wanted it a bit more poppy and less dark then y...view item »
