I want to touch you, you're just made for love.
My heart is currently lost to I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness
; I am that girl
today, wearing my new t-shirt the day after the show. We went by their CD release party last night and largely ignored the openers, the still-bland Radiohead photocopies The Glass Family
(apparently, I'm one of the few who doesn't care for them, though), but then sighed and swooned over I<3YBICD, our favorite gloomy local boys who have more effects pedals on stage than I've ever seen set out by a band! They head out on tour after SXSW; it behooves you to see them if they swing by your town -- check their page (lovely and flash-heavy, thus no direct link) for tour dates. It was also especially nice to pick up the album a few days ahead of time -- on vinyl no less. Those kids over at Secretly Canadian
know a thing or two about wonderful packaging -- it's just gorgeous.
And, call me crazy, but I feel this has "gloomcookie hipster kid dance hit" written all over it. And it needs some remixing. Hey, mc DJ
-- are you reading this? [Hint, hint.]I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness -- According to Plan
In other news, I may or may not have had something to do with the Cue profile up at See You in the Pit.
And so, keeping with the theme, Friday melancholia and sentimentality, Cindy Hotpoint style -- here's some songs for you. Each song may or may not be for you
specifically, selected readers, especially the anonymous ones who leave me ultra-flattering comments. It means a lot, it does -- thank you.Richard & Linda Thompson -- I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight
Pixies -- Gigantic
Okkervil River -- Westfall
The Wrens -- I Guess We're Done
Have a good weekend!
