The Curses have just released their first full-length CD! Exciting! The concept with this recording is to have two different flavors, one on each side. The first side of the record will feature songs that have more of a say... "pop/jazz sensibility" as the B side will get your hips moving to modern versions of an old style called "swing" No Zoot Suit crap.. I mean original weird swing music. Have you ever danced to a swing song that is about mowing the lawn? Well, well, well my friend... be prepared. "Vroom Ditty Doom" will take you to the porch steps in your underwear at 6am in the morning (while nobody is looking of course) softly bobbing your head while you sip your coffee with sleep in your eyes. Swing? Kinda. Side B.
This album was recorded ol' skool style. Thats right recording nerds! 2" TAPE! With the help of Aaron McCallister engineering and co-producing at Mr. Matt Talbotts (HUM) studio in Tolono IL.
Great Western Record Recorders.
PS: VINYL coming soon - stay tuned, guys and gals!
If 'The Curses' have souls, they are old ones. Their music is kinda like going to your favorite buffet Sunday afternoon with a bad hangover. So many tasty flavors to chose from! Stylistically, you might indulge in the flavors of Hank Williams-type fixins washed down with a bottle of Tom Waits' favorite whiskey, followed by decadent glop of Brian Setzer's grandma's mystery puddin'. Their music spans a strange and familiar point in time. The "sound" of 1920s style jazz, swing, folk, and country but with a new light shone upon it. How do you hear old and new songs at the same time? 'The Curses.
