mp3 | love inks | blackeye

the trio out of austin, love inks, released their debut lp e.s.p last year and have been relatively quiet since. fortunately, they've left behind jangly-pop gems like "blackeye," whose production is centered around a very calculated and deliberate style, a reflection of the band's minimalist approach. in their own words:

we are a family, and in some ways stronger because we are always supportive. the album reflects a time and place for everyone in the band. a time to pare down to what is necessary, essential. cut out complexity, and you’ll find a deeper layer that is thicker and stronger. like the human body, you’ll eventually end up at a nerve; once it’s hit, that’s when we know we’re there, and that’s when we press the record button. 

it's a long-winded answer for such an ostensibly straightforward track.  stream e.s.p's first single above and (right click, save link as) download here.  heads up via randolph.
