Chromatics 'Nite' LP
When "Nite" first appeared way back in 2006, Chromatics had yet to release their breakthrough album, Night Drive. Since then, the Johnny Jewel-helmed combo has gone on to bigger and better things, with each successive album bringing a fresh wave of success. As this reissue neatly proves, their sound was a little different back then. While there are nods towards their later soundtrack-inspired sound (see "Birds of Prey" and "Sleepwalker"), much of the mini-album is split equally between fuzzy, guitar-heavy art-rock workouts and, more thrillingly, the kind of thrusting, muscular Italo-disco revivalism that Mike Simonetti's Italians Do It Better imprint once excelled at delivering.
