Johnny Jewel “Black & White/A Mix For Autumn”

Something’s gotta hold us over until After Dark II, amirite? So far we’ve had a couple new Chromatics tracks (“Looking for Love” and “Cherry”), but the five-year wait since After Dark has made our thirst insatiable! Thankfully, Johnny Jewel (of Chromatics) feels our musical pains.

Yesterday he posted a mix, which he describes in terms of the changing season:
“It’s the end of Autumn, & all of the Reds, Greens, & Yellows have disintegrated into Black & White. Everything is buried by the snow…Perfect weather for locking yourself in the studio with a synthesizer & your favorite records…I put together a collage of songs that, for one reason or another…always remind me of Autumn.” 

Good thing it’s apparently still autumn in NYC then! This should be perfect timing.
