desire.


johnny jewel, the mastermind behind italians do it better, chromatics, glass candy has recently left his hometown portland for montreal where he met singer megan louise, leading to his latest project 'desire'. megan sings in french and english and johnny's stays true to his signature disco-noir production style while i'd describe the currently leaked songs as a bit more playful and lighter than chromatics - and very catchy!

gudren wolf put up all tracks from the five-track cd that desire gave away on saturday's show in portland where they opened for glass candy. i had a real hard time deciding what to post and as i am a big fan of everything that johnny jewel puts out, love all the tracks on this and want desire to be heard, i decided to upload the whole package for you on here as well. if you only want to hear one song for a start, my favorite right now is 'under your spell'.

desire - introduction (montre moi ton visage)
desire - mirror mirror
desire - under your spell
desire - dans mes reves
desire - if i can't hold you

much love to portland resident patricia furpurse over at gudren wolf for putting those up, to disco workout for bringing this to my attention and to the portland mercury for some well-needed background information. and if desire had a myspace page, i would ask you to go there right now - so just keep an eye on the italians do it better myspace for now!

Does anyone know if there is a better-than-128 quality rip of this anywhere? Or will it be made available for sale at some point?

Patricia said...

I believe this is just a demo. There are more songs and I think the full length will be on sale soon.

c'mon guys johnny is just recycling himself on this even if he's finally managed to bring the best out mixdown wise.

I do think this is kind of overrated really ... feels like an unfinished demo...Dans mes reves is not too bad though, i like the Julee Cruise feeling of it...
