R.A.D. Vinyl review

R.A.D. Vinyl review of Fake Infinity

"The tracks are cinematic in scope yet the three piece set up keeps “Fake Infinity” grounded and minimal enough to keep that post-punk edge. The album is soaked with buzzing analog sounds, angular riffs and propulsive krautrock drumming. The whole affair is dark and bizarre with lyrics that are intriguing and beguiling with some great hooks thrown into the mix."

Interview with Milwaukee's WMSE

Milwaukee's WMSE posted an interview in advance of last week's show with Ifihadahifi, Catacombz, and Heavy Hand.

They say that we're "part of that cold breeze that is slightly stunning the sun-baked atmosphere of their environs, their heavy keys and percussion wallop, droning and electrifying simultaneously with the sting of sinister lyrics."

Back from tour. More reviews

We just got home from our East Coast and Midwest tour. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows and helped us out in any way. It was great to see some old friends and make some new ones.

DC ROCK LIVE posted a nice review of our show at the Velvet Lounge.

"The drums are solid and the keys and electronics come up with a mixture of scrumptious melodic passages and assertive textural blasts. The songs are focused and manage to build intrigue...Nervous Curtains offer their personal approach to this style and come up with a vibrant set of songs that will stay with me for some time."

Hanus TV posted a review of Fake Infinity, making note of our "epic as hell synths that tear through each track, like if it was in the middle of a sonic warzone."

Come Around Viral video

The third video from FAKE INFINITY shot and edited with no budget or pro experience. Featuring Tim Cooper as the priest, Emil Rapstine as the monk, Jason Hensel as the congregation. Shot by Nan Little Kirkpatrick and edited by me. A schizophrenic priest discovers a book which sheds an uncomfortable light on the extreme polarities between his public and private life.

Tour press/ radio

In advance of our Atlanta show tomorrow, I was named "Kool Kat of the Week" in ATL RETRO. Read an interview in which I rattle on about FAKE INFINITY, Ultravox, Magazine, a bunch of post punk bands, the problem with synth pop retro acts, and why we love funk music but know better than to try to play it.

The Aquarian in New Jersey wrote a preview of our Asbury Park show next Monday.

Speaking of New Jersey, we were honored to be played along with so many incredible artists on Jon Solomon's show on WPRB in Princeton. We'll be stopping by the station Monday afternoon to tape an in-studio performance.

Innocent Words review

Chicago-based magazine Innocent Words reviewed Fake Infinity.

"There is a pulse of definition and innovation beneath these ten tracks that beats with potential; it is invigorating to hear a good band growing into something great.

The album is called Fake Infinity, as if to say it is something unreal existing forever. But most listeners will probably find this disc as taking the realest parts of music and making them count for each moment they are played. We may hear the echoes of the past in these tracks, but they are definitely taking the necessary steps into creating the future."
