K's Choice, A Fragile Tomorrow

[ALT-ROCK FLASHBACK] It would be unfair to call K’s Choice a one-hit wonder. “Not an Addict,” the lone hit from the 1996 album Paradise in Me, still finds its way into alt-rock radio playlists, and most would be hard-pressed to name another K’s Choice single. But Paradise in Me is filled with gems, like the new wave-inspired “Iron Flower” and the folksy, melancholy slow jam “Wait.” Through the late ’90s, K’s Choice drifted from Garbage and Hole territory into less-inspired realms, exemplified by a tour supporting Alanis Morissette and an appearance on Buffy. Eventually, the group realized it was wearing its own originality thin and went on hiatus. The band’s reunion album, Echo Mountai, released in 2010, maintains an emotional tenor somewhere between Christian folk rock and Harry Chapin. Don’t forget what this tour is: a reunion where the crowd respectfully smiles at the millennial singles while praying “Not an Addict” is the encore.
