All their 3 records are great. Very different one from another. They were very talented. It's a shame that they aren't together anymore. Wonder what they would do after the Deadish sound of Alive As You Are.
I came over the self titled album at a record store in Boston when this guy told me it was by Darker My Love and that he was friends/ex-friends with the vocalist and he saw them opening for The Dandy Warhols one time. When I asked him if the album was any good he said he had no idea since he had never listened to them.
I really thought these guys were going to be big. Turns out Tim's other gig white fence (which is also great) got more love all round. Alive as you are is underrated. It's a more clean full band version of what white fence do. Minus all the abstract parts and Lo-Fi sound i guess..
