Lace Curtain is a new project from Australian wizards Mikey Young, Dave West and James Vinciguerra. The trio, who are involved in a myriad of punk and garage bands including Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control and Rat Columns, veer in an entirely new direction on this 12″ for Mexican Summer. Each side shows the band approaching electronic music with a diverse interpretation that encompasses elements of disco, krautrock and synth pop. From the outset those drum machine patterns are locked in tight, boosted by deep, pummelling synths and basslines that could seemingly play out for eternity. West’s vocals drift in and out of each track, cloaked in a foggy club ambience that only further enhances this release’s air of nonchalant cool.
