The superb synthpop soundtrack to 2011’s ‘Drive’ has been a resounding success and a strong seller here over the past year or two. It’s already made a minor star of Kavinsky, whose slick debut LP of electro-house synth wizardry is already a highlight of 2013 so far, and now Invada are reissuing the debut album and EP by College, who provided the film’s main theme ‘A Real Hero’.

This album was recorded in 2008 but given all the synthpop/horror synth revival that’s been going on lately it sounds very of the moment. It’s mostly instrumental, with patient beats and gliding, bright synth tones, sort of like something between Kavinsky and the less flashy, more patient stylings of soundtrackers like John Carpenter or Fabio Frizzi and flashes of process-oriented krauty analogue cool. Superb stuff, definitely well worth investigating if you’re into all this French synth house business or were a fan of the ‘Drive’ soundtrack.
