Craigslist, Casual Encounters: Lace Curtains - "Bedroom Honesty" (High Fantasy)
Frankly, silkscreening custom band T-shirts, secretly leaking tracks via Craigslist, and private pressing your own albums is about as D.I.Y. and "crafty" as it gets in mundane 2012 A.D. Michael Coomers has formed a new band since releasing Harlem's last Matador-backed record, HIPPIES. Lace Curtains was quietly announced along with a companion Tumblr, where Coomers prints up made-to-order $25 T-shirts using "original paint [from] The Ren & Stimpy Show" (1992). Matthew Tong drums on the garden of joy and the well of loneliness, while Curtis from Harlem laid down a few additional guitar riffs.
I hear that Michael Coomers is toying around with the idea of re-forming a fully fleshed out band for a short North American tour this Summer. Female Fantasy Records is probably going to release the garden of joy and the well of loneliness sometime in July. "High Fantasy" was posted on Lace Curtains' Tumblr back in mid-May and "Bedroom Honesty" was linked during a Craigslist "casual encounters" post just the other day (June 11th). Michael Coomers bravely included the caption/description, "looking for whatever that means to you..." along with it; Man, I bet he got a shit-ton of very interesting email replies straight to his Inbox!
