LaceÂ CurtainÂ isÂ MikeyÂ Young and David West
from Total Control, Rat Columns, Rank/Xerox, Eddy Current Suppression
Ring et al, exploring an electronic world of pleasure, frustration and
sadness. Bedroom dancers, synthetic singers, basement kicks in a
romantic void. Influenced by the Germans, the Italians, pale British
button pushers, glamorous alien pop futurists, Mid-Western sweat, NYC
disco dreamers, undercover kings and queens escaping a dull grey world
with rhythm and noise, sound and vision.
The 3rd EP byÂ LaceÂ CurtainÂ ushers in sounds both new and old to
theÂ LaceÂ CurtainÂ listener. A feeling of detached romanticism and
dystopian fantasy hangs heavily over this recording, which was delivered
to tape and hard drive in San Francisco, Melbourne and Rye, alone and
together. â€œI Canâ€™t Waitâ€ and â€œLoverâ€™s Fadeâ€ on Side A send affectionate
yet fleeting glances in the direction of Chicago and Milano. A Korg from
the past predicts the malfunctioning systems of the future. Pop is
welcomed, confusion is courted. Side B drifts into headier territories.
â€œFortressâ€ sweeps through percussive vistas and analog landscapes with
the dream logic of an intoxicated tour guide, ending in rapturous
murmurs. â€œUnfortunate Lifeâ€ sends us down the rabbit hole of monolithic
machinery and the abstractions of short-circuited lives. " - MEXICAN SUMMER RECORDS
