Last week we wrote about Portland/Montreal's Johnny Jewel and his new project, Desire. At the time of our interview, there were no finished Desire recordings, but all that has changed: The band had copies of a five song EP available at Saturday's Rotture performance, and the Gudren Wolf blog has been kind enough to post the entire release.
Don't expect any surprises as far as what Desire sounds like—think Chromatics, Part II—but the combination of Jewel's stylish disco production and the enticing voice of Megan Louise make this an absolutely compelling listen.
