Baby Teeth CD
2009 Stickfigure Records/Tephramedia
Baby Teeth, released not but moments into 2009, follows up 2007's Wound in Wall. Feeding Fingers is one of those few bands that take the building blocks left behind by momentous artists we all know and love, and offers something beautiful and new. Feeding Fingers take that postpunk/mope rock puzzle from the 4AD school and The Cure and make their own pictures. The result is something clever and sincere.
The voice is a meek, melancholic wail, while the keys contribute a variety of excellent support, for example the distorted church organ of the superb title track, "Baby Teeth" and the dour "This Isn't Enough". The album is much softer and the keys come out more for it, where as Wound in Wall left more to the guitars, making the album often slow and depressive. But even the more driven tracks like "Baby Teeth" and "Permissions For Sleep" never lift that black cloud completely. The atmosphere, and the bass in particular, reminds of And Also The Trees, while the vocal styling recalls the more introverted sound of Robert Smith. Though I liked Wound In Wall better, I'd definitely like to see them play with The Prids and A Spectre Is Haunting Europe, for instance.
