DOWNLOAD: Chromatics - "Into the Black" (MP3)

Chromatics at Lincoln Hall, Chicago in Jan. (more by Zach Pollack)
Chromatics

Portland, OR post-punk-turned-synth-pop outfit Chromatics are back with their first full length since 2007's Night Drive. They began picking up speed again in 2011 after the success of the Drive Soundtrack, which they contributed to, and announced that the album, titled Kill For Love, would come out this past January. The release was pushed back a few times but it finally came out last month via Italians Do It Better, the Troubleman Unlimited imprint which is co-run by Chromatics/Glass Candy/Desire multi-instrumentalist Johnny Jewel. Leading up to the release, the band put out videos for five songs off the album, which includes a cover of Neil Young's "Into the Black." All five videos were directed by Alberto Rossini and can be watched below, along with a stream of the entire album. You can also download "Into the Black" above or stream it below.

Chromatics will be in NYC next week to open for Pulp at Radio City Music Hall on April 10. Tickets for that show are still available. Jeffrey Lewis opens Pulp's second Radio City show (4/11) which is sold out.

Really want to like Chromatics but her voice is just so unbearable.

As much as I love Chromatics and Johnny Jewel's production, I can't stand seated venues. Hopefully JJ comes back to the city and throws another Italians Do It Better specific event.

Bummed that this is on night one, but night two (which went on sale first) has fucking Jeffrey Lewis. Lame.

^ Ugh, I didn't elaborate on my disdain for Pulp's music

Pulp + Radio City MH = No way I'm going

Sucks, because my favorite show of 2011 was Chromatics and Glass Candy at Webster.

I don't know this band pulp, but I am very familiar with mashing my chickpeas into a pulp.

^ I have heard conflicting reasons. I understand Chromatics were formed in Portland, but a few of the members are from New Jersey

Second pulp show isn't selling well. I am seeing center orchestra section 500 row GG still available. I'd be furious if I bought 2nd mezz seats for the initial show.
