Chromatics: chrome rats vs basement ruts: C/D?

I really love this new disc. Sounds like joy division and early sonic youth and birthday party all mushed together only with more screaming. I guess the blood brothers guy does vocals on some tracks on here too, but whatever.
what do you think of it?

Indeed - it was only ever on a very limited 12". That version of the Springsteen song is so goddamned good.

The "Deluxe Edition" of "Night Drive" is up now on iTunes too - 5 additional tracks.

Both are coming out on CD as well, and "Night Drive" will FINALLY be out on vinyl soon.

Very exciting for IDIB nerds.

Is it the Francois Hardy cover? That was a bonus download for people who bought the Chromatics on vinyl.

Man love that cherry ep. Moka was otm about how good it was. Isolating the strings from cherry on I can’t keep running made me pause

Newest single isn’t too bad, though I swore I had heard it before. EP compiles a few remixes by the band, ranging from instrumental to a more beat heavy version.

correction, new single is one of their most meh tracks to date..out of the singles from dear tommy, i can't be myself when i'm around you is probably the best...shadow is decent, but overrated and the other two are shruggable. still my most anticipated album tho
