FEEDING FINGERS - "BABY TEETH"
In the year 2009 there are more than many Gothic-Bands.
Not only a few of them imitate stereotypical ideals such as The Cure,
Siouxsie & The Banshees or Bauhaus, which are considered to be the
originators of Gothic -however, they were active before this genre started
to exist at all. Henceonly few people know the true soul of this kind of
music and the outcome is often diluted and soulless.
In the middle of this swamp of mediocrity there are some highlights: One of
the biggest exceptions is Feeding Fingers.
Founded in Atlanta, the trio is led by mastermind, singer and
multi-media-artist Justin Curfman, supported by bassist Todd Caras
(ex-Entertainment) and the percussionist Danny Hunt. Doubtlessly Feeding
Fingers have more than studied the music of Gothic veterans like X-Mal
Deutschland, Cocteau Twins and The Cure, they have completely inhaled and
internalized this music.
With their debut album „Wound in Wall“ the trio impressed the listener by
showing that not only do they understand and actually live the style and
aesthetics of this music, but they also dispose its desolate soul and deep
emotions in such an authentic and original form, thus making the sounds of
Feeding Fingers to a booster detonation.
Last but not least the suffering and charismatic voice of Justin Curfman,
who has a unique way of phrasing songs, gives the band its emotional,
characteristic and individual touch.
Even more than in their first album the band releases a minimalistic and
punctual performance with their new throw- out „Baby Teeth“. Surely their
new sound reminds of the The Cure classic „Faith“ – but which other Gothic
band has ever consequently continued where Robert Smith & Co stopped decades
ago? The ethereal, traumatic beauty of the melodies in songs like „Plain
Faced Afternoons“, the great atmosphere and the flowing and yet compact and
homogeneous character of the songs create a complex picture, which can stand
All those who like to feel the sensation of Gothic in its original sense and
who are tired of half-cooked clichés, should definitely listen to „Baby
Teeth“. And you will notice that most of all Feeding Fingerscreate one
Music with depth and soul!
