I LOVE YOU BUT I’VE CHOSEN DARKNESS and THE IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES New Releases Now Available Via Mailorder Page

At our MAILORDER PAGE, you can now pre-order our two new releases which will be hitting stores on March 7. Those that have been waiting for the first proper full-length from I LOVE YOU BUT I’VE CHOSEN DARKNESS since their 2003 debut EP on Emperor Jones, will be very pleased that they can finally get their “FEAR IS ON OUR SIDE” CD/LP. Likewise, THE IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES’ “TUM” is finally available on CD, after having been released last year on limited edition vinyl on St. Ives (and consequently having gone out of print in quick fashion). The album is regarded by most every SHAPES fan as their masterpiece and will hopefully find a new life now that it’s being made available widely for the first time.

THE IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES re-release Tum, Tour the States, new MP3s

Bloomington Indiana’s IMPOSSIBLE SHAPES are not a band to sit still for very long. The musical energy created by these three enlightened men is enough to create lights in the sky to rival Aurora Borealis.

Easily the rawest tapes of the Shapes canon, Tum is a potent album, self-produced and directed to articulate a peak without contemporary parallels. Previously released last year on St. Ives Records as a vinyl-only release, this hidden gem, one that many consider to be the band’s lost Masterwork will be available to all on March 7th.

MP3′s: Florida Silver Springs
