The latest project from New Jersey indie rocker Neil Sabatino is a near-perfect blend of acoustic and electric sensibilities. With a host of guest musicians, Sabitino has put together this debut album from his "band" Fairmont. The first eight tunes on the CD, dubbed "the electric sessions," are quality indie rock in the vein of Barenaked Ladies or The Violent Femmes. While the tunes are on the softer side of rock, the striking vocals of Sabatino are reminiscent of Johnny Lydon of PIL. The second batch of eight songs on the CD, obviously dubbed "the acoustic sessions," are some of the tastiest folk tunes around. The clever irreverent lyrics of such songs as "How Summer Tour Made Me An Atheist," 2nd Rate Backstabbing Band," and "It's Not Rain, God Is Spitting On Us," puts this release over the top.

Fairmont seem to demonstrate their versatility well. This disc, split between electric and acoustic sessions, is a grooving indie machine with just enough emo to tickle the tragic heart.
