ROCK: Goth, POP: Dark Wave
Feeding Fingers is an Atlanta, GA based trio typically characterized as one of the southeast''s premiere darkwave/goth/deathrock bands. The group is led by international award-winning animator/multi-media artist, Justin Curfman and supported by bassist Todd Caras (former member of the highly respected Atlanta/Athens, GA groups in a similar vein, Entertainment (https://www.tradebit.com) and professional veteran percussionist, Danny Hunt.
Their work is reminiscent of early Cure, Depeche Mode, X-Mal Deutschland, Joy Division, Cocteau Twins, etc. with their often minimalist and hypnotic percussive elements... droning yet fluid and dynamic bass structures... heavily sustained guitar work... bizarre dream-inspired lyrics... ("...today I found an animal''s mouth in a bag of broken hands..."). They have a definite appeal to those who crave an element of dark surrealism in their music.
Album review from The Southeast Performer (March ''07):
"The old proverb warns us not to judge a book by its cover. The artwork on the CD label alone is enough to warn of doom and gloom ahead. With cryptic song titles printed in an eerily scrawled font, there appears to be a number of dark places this album could go. Is it your garden variety morbid death metal? Will there be lots of screaming and depictions of bleeding fetuses? The fears are threatening and numerous.
But as soon as the opening track rolls in, all concerns are quelled as quickly as they came. Lush, melodic layers of guitar and piano subdue wary ears. As if to second the feeling, one-man show Justin Curfman chimes in, singing “fills my mind ... with relief.” Exactly.
Here lies a noble attempt at traditional gothic beauty. With an obvious nod to bands like The Cure, Curfman’s mournful cries echo in the distance, veiled in a gauze of reverb. Swirling around him is a variety of minimalist accompaniment, ranging from guitar and piano to electronic beats.
"Standout track “Fireflies Make Us Sick” might as well have been written by Depeche Mode themselves... "

"Curfman’s genius is not yet well known, yet his courage and gift for reaching deep inside the darkest wells of our hearts and minds will not be buried or easily forgotten..."
