Dark Dark Dark are from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their debut album, The Snow Magic, was released in October, 2008 (PopMatters called it “A strong debut”). In the past year, the band has played over 150 shows, spanning the entire US, France, Belgium, Italy and Canada. Before they return home to record their next album, they have been enlisted by the band WHY? to open 11 shows on their US tour this October, stopping off in Worcester, Milford (New Haven), Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Ann Arbor, Chicago, Madison, Minneapolis, Denver and Salt Lake City.
To commemorate, Supply And Demand Music will be releasing a limited edition 7-inch (also available through digital outlets), featuring remixes by Odd Nosdam and Dosh of two tracks from The Snow Magic.
Odd Nosdam puts his signature spin on crowd favorite “Junk Bones”, filling the tune with dirty breakbeats and nasty bass, while Dosh’s remix of Snow Magic closer “All The Things” floats in and out, a simple loop growing and changing out of control. As a bonus, each copy of the 7-inch allows you to download an additional psych remix of “Colors” by S&D label head Tom Inhaler.
OH, and did we mention the artwork? Christian Rex van Minnen’s “Manfungus Series 1.1” is beautifully grotesque, and the perfect complement to these reworked tracks.
Dark Dark Dark’s tour with WHY? begins September 27th, and the Remix 7-inch is released October 6th, 2009 on Supply And Demand Music.

Christian Rex van Minnen’s “Manfungus Series 1.1″, Dark Dark Dark Remixes 7” Album Art
“Nona Marie Invie and Marshall LaCourt’s vocals are as compatible as lovers and give all of their image-heavy words of stark atmospheric recognizance enough illumination to have no understanding of true dark. They’re mesmerizing in the way they work human frailty and susceptibility into the foggy membranes of the songs, spraying them with flurries and the winds that make you feel naked. They’re mesmerizing in the way that the cold feel pleasurable naked.”- Daytrotter
“The Snow Magic is a strong debut that evokes dark times in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.”-Pop Matters
“Despite employing little more than accordion, strings, banjo, and voice, The Snow Magic still manages to swell with dramatic tension, its streamlined sound marching confidently forward… A band equal parts haunted hay ride and Beirut, Dark Dark Dark is more than just bells, whistles, and expertly blended vocal patterns, it all comes back to their nagging emphasis on mood.”- Reveille
