Johnny Jewel has put together a great mixtape, entitled “Running From The Sun”, with unreleased material from the sessions for Chromatics’ recent EP “Kill For Love”. In his own words: “Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 & 6 a.m. After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we’d clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, & feel around in the dark…working our way through the atmospheric elements & peeling back layers of rhythm…throwing the songs into the abstract pile & playing them while driving home in the snow.” This is a lullaby for you…

Tracklisting:
1. Dreaming In Color
2. Red Car
3. Kill For Love
4. Last Wish
5. Running From The Sun
6. Disintegration
7. These Streets Will Never Look The Same
8. Blue Moon
