Darker my love northern soul

2 is the second album by the Los Angeles band Darker My Love. Recorded primarily at Sunset Sound Recorders in Los Angeles, with additional recording at Sage & Sound, The Boat, Sonora and Westbeach Recorders, it is the first with Will Canzoneri on organ and clavinet. It was released on 5 August 2008. The artwork for the album was by the lead guitarist/vocalist Tim Presley. Several of the songs on 2 had previously been performed live in a different arrangement under various working titles, appearing on the set of live albums that Darker My Love recorded during their Spaceland residency in 2006. The bass guitarist/vocalist Rob Barbato reportedly compulsively consumed two tablespoons of apple sauce between vocal takes on the song "Two Ways Out".


The album, produced by Dave Cooley and mixed by Tony Hoffer, peaked at #41 on the heatseekers album chart.
