Song of the Day: The Jesus & Mary Chain - Darklands

My first exposure to The Jesus & Mary Chain was through the Pixies, but it was the Stoned & Dethroned album that made me a fan.  JAMC is often associated with the feedback of their debut Psychocandy, but the clearer (and even - gasp! - acoustic) guitars on Stoned did not detract from the impact of the songs.

For that reason, I really like the Darklands LP, which is a nice mix of what came before and what was to come.  The opening, eponymous track is a particular favorite of mine.
