Brad's twee is all good and dandy, but sometimes happy, saccharine tunes just won't do it for you. By now, I think I've pretty much established myself as the Darker Side of the Mouth (if it seems like Brad is so much nicer than I am, that's because it's true). With that said, it's only fitting that I adore this band. Hailing from right here in Austin, I Love You, But I've Chosen Darkness creates ethereal indie rock with lifted vocals and '80s beats (listen to the snare in "When You Go Out" -- you'll be reminded of Billy Idol). I'm normally drawn to bands with awesome guitars, and for sure, this band does have awesome guitars, but I have to say that the standout instrument of Chosen Darkness is the bass. Covering a range that is not often covered by the genre, the bass lines are incredible and creative, adding a subtle yet strong backbone to every track. I love you, Edward Robert!
