DOWNLOAD THIS NOW: Chromatics, “Red Car”

Scion's 10th anniversary compilation

Scion's 10th anniversary compilationScion has unveiled the latest track from its 10th anniversary compilation, a previously unreleased Chromatics number that last appeared on Johnny Jewel’s Running From the Sun mix. According to his notes on that release, its vocoder-led vocals and vaporized beats are actually from the Kill For Love sessions. “Recorded November 2009 through December 2011, these songs were all mixed between 4 and 6 a.m.,” he wrote. “After hours of tracking at the studio in Montreal, we’d clear the channels on the mixer, open a bottle of wine, and feel around in the dark. Working our way through the atmospheric elements and peeling back layers of rhythm…throwing the songs into the abstract pile and playing them while driving home in the snow.”

Yep, that sounds about right…
