The Curtains are an art-rock band from California that combines eccentric pop melodies, improvisation and film music in very short song-forms that often come off as sketches or drafts rather than sustained rock compositions. The band was formed in 2000 by guitarist Chris Cohen, formerly a member of Deerhoof.
From the fertile ground of Nottingham's bountiful music scene grew Orchards. The group yields fruit in the shape of sweet, crunchy melodies married to bitesize narratives for your listening pleasure. Indeed, the french name for Orchards is "pommes pour l'oreille". And their raison d'etre? Simply to sing, plonk, bash, strum and bow through said nutritious nuggets. This humble assembly of musicians currently / have previously graced such fine groups as Saint Joan, Jones of Colorado, Sweetbriar, The Nordic Mile, The Grave Architects and the Sexcapades of Dan Diego. One member also once had the privilege of joining the Chemistry Experiment on stage in Bath. Something lead him to lean over and bite the top of the keyboard player's head. Relations between the two groups remain amicable despite this infringement.
The new project of Tom and Chris of Hirameka Hi-Fi.
