The Portland synth-pop band led by Johnny Jewel is back after a 5 year haitus, and their new album Kill for Love is free to stream. Go to Johnny Jewel’s Soundcloud profile to play the album blended together into one 90 minute long synth orgy. It is also out on iTunes from their label Italians Do It Better.

My preliminary review is that it is absolutely amazing.
If you love synthpop (or liked the music in Drive), this is the album for you. If you don’t like synthpop, this will redeem it for you. If you have never listened to music before, this album is the one to start with.
Below, watch the Youtube video for the first track, a cover of Neil Young’s “Into the Black.”
