You Have Two Options: Love or Darkness?

I Love

The good ol’ extended play is pretty famous around these parts; just ask the scientist on why he loves them oh so much. Way back in 2003, the Austin, TX quintet known as, I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness put out one hell of a five track EP. There was some buzz some years ago centered on this act and after hearing this sampler of sorts, it was more than warranted, but what initially hooked me was who sat in on production: Britt Daniel of Spoon fame. To me, his touch is all over these songs. Various tracks sound like if Spoon decided to write darker songs, but also wanted to keep their poppy edge. These five tracks are drenched with Joy Division bass lines, shimmering guitars, and enough jangle to question why I’d even call this dark.

Perhaps a MiS first and maybe also what causes the demise of our blog, I present to you the EP in its entirety.

I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness :: s/t EP

“According to Plan” was a single from their 2006 full-length, Fear Is On Our Side.

    Great mystic bass line in the video. I’ll be listening to the EP on my way to Indy tomorrow. Good looks…
