Daily Download: "According to Plan," I Love You but I've Chosen Darkness

"According to Plan" is the opening sally from Austin band I Love You but I've Chosen Darkness' much anticipated full-length debut, "Fear Is on Our Side," due out in March. It's not an immediately appealing song, with an ugly, synthetic-sounding bass sound way out front and some heavily processed '80s drums, but an interesting interplay develops between the stiffness of the drums and bass and the mushy, retiring sounds of the guitar and voice, until everyone forgets their differences and joins together for some surprisingly effective swells of arena rock. Still, the music's playing catch-up to the name.
