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 favourite soundtrack, Drive, so you need to hear this as soon as possible.
This album is so good that it's worth buying on LP AND CD solely so you can enjoy it in your car as well. If there is a catchier song than the title track Night Drive, i don't want to hear about it. So just buy the album now so you can drive around doing your best Ryan Gosling impression and pull all the ladies/lads.
