The post-punk synth rock band's third album 'Con' is its most raw and urgently aggressive. Sonically, the album explores the rhythmic tension between pulsing electronics and live drums while merging these elements into a blast of defiant energy and enduring tunes. Nervous Curtains has created a world in which paranoia is a cultural commodity amidst a battleground of convictions and contradictions

Friday, August 5th, 2016 Fond Object Backyard Party!! Doors: 6:30pm // Show: 7pm // ALL AGES
Featuring: Sweet Knives (https://www.facebook.com/sweetknives/) (Members of Lost Sounds) w/ Datenight (https://www.facebook.com/datenight615/) - https://datenightband.bandcamp.com/releases
Here's a little more info about Sweet Knives for your reading pleasure: In 2005 Memphis black-wave synth punk band Lost Sounds called it quits after being kicked out of a house in Stuttgart in the middle of a long long night. With that, four albums and numerous singles and outtakes releases were leftover, and the brutal live show would never happen again. As Jay Reatard (½ of the Lost Sounds songwriting team with Alicja Trout) continued to grow his hopeful career on Matador Records the other band members moved on down less-publicised roads.
Rich Crook, drummer of Lost Sounds, formed Lover! and THING and toured as singer/guitar player. Alicja toured with River City Tanlines, Black Sunday, Mouserocket, and released solo recordings as Alicja-pop. Meanwhile time was healing the wounds that had caused the band break-up.
Sadly Jay’s light died in January 2010.
So what was to become of the 100+ Lost Sounds song catalog?
Alicja, Rich, and original member John Garland have brought back a set of tunes from the old Lost Sounds closet. Along with Johnny Valiant on bass they are called Sweet Knives, named after a song from the Lost Sounds 2004 In The Red “Future Touch” seven song EP. And this past January 2016 the group recorded a four song double 7” that will be available in August on Red Lounge Records.
Lost Sounds was known for a sound filled with angst, paranoia, and anxiety all rolled up in a synth laden rock n roll tasty burrito. Sweet Knives carries on the quest with a new delivery, less likely to fall apart and fall off stage, and more likely to infect a room with a symphony of sharpened blades.
