[2012] Symmetry - Themes For An Imaginary Film

Symmetry, the latest project from Johnny Jewel (along with Nat Walker) released by Italians Do It Better. Themes for an Imaginary Film, the group's deeply ambitious debut album, is a different beast altogether: "cinematic" may not be as accurate as "novelistic" in describing a record as sprawling, mysterious and immersive as this one. While kickstarted in part by Jewel's involvement in the Drive soundtrack (as he recently told Pitchfork, he began writing music for the film before the producers eventually went with the more experienced Cliff Martinez), Themes doesn't feel like the score for something so much as the thing in and of itself—a work of intricate storytelling and thematic sophistication.
