The Curtain Society hale from Worcester, MA, just 45 minutes west of Boston, yet somehow in the middle of nowhere. The inspiration for Paul Simon’s “My Little Town” has needed its champions over the years, and few have done as much to promote wormtown’s music as producer Roger Lavallee. Apparently all the work he’s done with other bands, as well as his naturally world class ears, has helped broaden the pallette of The Curtain Society. Tracks such as “Diver” and “Feather” are leaps and bounds beyond anything they’ve done before. In lieu of their trademark typhoon of guitars, we find baroque pop influences, chiming Byrds-like arpeggios, New Zealand pop sparkle, and the best singing Lavallee has ever done.
