The Scion 10 Music Release compilation keeps the jams coming with the release of two new songs from Chromatics and Hot Lunch, now available for streaming and free download. What’s great about Scion 10 Music Release is the breadth of styles and sounds it brings together, and nowhere is that more evident in this pairing.
“Red Car” by Chromatics is woozy wonder, dripping with synthesizer drama and manipulated vocals. The group is one of the flagship acts of Italians Do It Better, the label run by Johnny Jewel, a multi-talented musician who is a member of most of the groups on the imprint’s roster, including Glass Candy, Desire, Mirage, Symmetry and, yes, Chromatics. Joining Jewel in the group is Ruth Radelet, Adam Miller and Nat Walker, and though they’ve existed in different permutations and have tried various approaches since 2001, last year marked a breakout for the group with the release of their album Kill for Love. A haunting and masterful album, Kill for Love delivered on all the expectations that arose around the band following 2007’s fantastic Night Drive and their appearance on the soundtrack to the film Drive.
Hot Lunch out of San Francisco bring much gnarlier approach to “Hooray For Everything.” Build on raw boogie and just enough thrash, the song gets plenty wild for all of you raging at home. Singer Eric Shea formed the skate rock band by picking players from some of his favorite other Bay Area bands, filling out the lineup with guitarist Aaron Nudelman, drummer Rob Alper and bassist Charlie Karr. Hot Lunch released their self-titled debut earlier this year on Tee Pee Records and has continued to tear up stages, including last weekend’s Scion Rock Fest in Memphis, Tennessee.
