FEATURED ARTIST
I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness
“According to Plan” [MP3]
multiple songs [MySpace]


I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness formed during the summer of 2001 in Austin, Texas. Members past and current have been involved with previous Austin bands Windsor for the Derby, Paul Newman, Glorium, and Salute the Curse. Utilizing a simple lineup of three guitars, bass, drums, and the occasional keyboard, the band picked up stylistically where previous projects had left off, featuring intricate guitar interplay and simple but effective song structures. The previous two years have been spent touring and writing music for their first full length LP, Fear Is On Our Side, an understandably more dark and gritty affair than their debut. 2006 will be a year full of touring, writing, and recording new material.

“Take It From Me)” [MP3]
multiple songs: [MySpace]


“The way Talan and Steven Tannen harmonize makes me feel totally comforted and warm, and frequently, for some reason, on the verge of tears… There’s no pretension here, no artifice, no beats by Fisher Price, and absolutely nothing hip. They won’t make you look cool to your extended MySpace network, but there’s absolutely nothing guilty in the pleasure of listening to them.” — PopMatters
