Desire II (Italians Do it Better)

Submitted by on Sunday, 12 July 2009No Comment

Of all the characters in the Italians Do It Better family, Johnny Jewel (pictured) is the most consistently brilliant producer and mind. His focussed vision of emotionally driven disco bleeds a sleazy and impossibly glamorous late night vibe that’s hard to find anywhere else and makes his many projects so damn cherishable. Desire is the result of his latest work, still bringing the sharply honed pop sensibility and immediate hooks of his Glass Candy and Chromatics projects but this time embellished with a moodier slowdisco vibe as opposed to midnight glam.

‘Montre Moi Ton Visage’ rips us back to some concert venue in the early 80’s with disingenuous crowd noises and heavy reverbs setting an epic scene before ‘Mirroir Mirroir’ turns on dark charms with lo-fi and deadpan vox from Megan Louise. It’s all to his credit that you’ll be beating yourself up thinking “where the f**k have I heard this before” when of course it’s all original material. Following this, the simple but beautifully executed developments of ‘Dans Mes Reves’ will leave few heads blind to his talents, but it’s the darker American allure of ‘Colorless Sky’ that you should be playing to your friends that need convincing.
