I remembering sitting in the movie theater watching Drive, and being absolutely blown away by the soundtrack. It was the selections of College and Kavinsky’s music in that film that really renewed my addiction to synth pop. Kavinsky recently released his debut album, Outrun (thankfully on vinyl), and now the announcement comes through of College’s Secret Diary and Teenage Color receiving the vinyl treatment.
The vinyl (and CD…) release of College’s music will be issued for the first time ever through Geoff Barlow’s (Portishead, DROKK, Quakers) label, Invada. Scheduled for release on May 6th, the albums will feature the projects’ iconic, ’80s themed cover art in all of their 12×12 glory. The cherry on top, is limited color pressings! Secret Diary will come in both Lipstick Red and Cyan Blue, and Teenage Color will support the colors Neon Pink and Yellow. I’m so excited to add these to the collection! I’ll take a Cyan and a Pink, please.
