I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness has reemerged from the shadows with their second full-length album Dust. Produced by Paul Barker of Ministry, Dust picks up where 2006’s Fear Is On Our Side left off, with ten new tracks of dark, driving, propulsive rock. These taut songs have no need for unnecessary arrangements or artifice. Chosen Darkness’ music is honest, and never stiff; affected, but not whining. Dust’s minimalist artwork and specificity of tone demonstrate an elegance & wisdom, as these 10 songs evoke the foggy landscapes of Twin Peaks (the misty “Safely”, fatalistic “You Are Dead To Me”) as well as a burning storm. It is high time for I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness to come back into the light.
