I had followed this band a few years and was given demos & other recordings while running IVM. When I was sent this full length from Midwest indie rock/experimental band, Darkroom, I just knew there was something special with them.

"A Curious Excavation" was released in 2007, independently. Their song "Six Eight Four Four" even appeared on "Hearts Bleed Passion Vol. 3" in 2008 on IVM.

If you are a fan of Anathallo, Damien Jurado, Abandon Kansas, or My Epic, you'll love the music of Darkroom.

"Today I was at my mailbox to pick up all the latest cds that labels so graciously send us. In the pile were cds from Dizmas, Derek Webb, Odd Project, and a cd from a band called "Darkroom". At first look I thought it was going to be some crappy unsigned band with a weird name. Second look, I realized they had some snazzy cd artwork and they wrote a personal handwritten note. So I was like "Oh what the heck, what harm can popping this cd in cause?". Well this cd is far from causing you any harm. It radiates with beauty and creativity. It's a well structured and well orchestrated collection of songs rich in texture. Their cd "A Curious Exacavation" just came out March 31st. This is a band that needs to be heard so please give them a chance today." -Brandon Jones/Indie Vision Music 2007
