Chromatics – Kill for Love

I don’t know you guys. Kill for Love is a long electronic album that got a pretty “meh” review from the A.V. Club, but placed really well on Pitchfork’s best albums of the year list. Last time that happened, it was M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming, one of my favorites from last year. The Chromatics did a song for Drive, the movie, and this album opens with a Neil Young cover. I think I’m destined to like this a lot, but not be able to share that with anyone else. It hasn’t quite hit me as hard as M83 did, but I bet it will. At the very least, I’m probably destined to listen to this on the bus going to class a whole lot.

Favorite Tracks: “into the Black,” “Kill for Love,” “These Streets Will Never Look the Same”
