Album Notes
Fairmont is a NJ based band that combines elements of emo, indie rock, punk, and acoustic based music and presents a sound all their own. This disk consists of two seperate recording sessions. The first 8 tracks are from an electric session while the last 8 tracks are from an acoustic session. Fairmont has been compared favorably to bands such as Jawbreaker, Violent Femmes, Weakerthans, Bob Dylan, and more. Check them out today.

Skratch Magazine #73
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.

The Aquarian Weekly
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.

still room for improvement, but the music is great
I really enjoyed some of the "Electronic" tracks early on in the CD. the emotion is clear to hear in the music, which i find lacking in most bands - even ones that claim to be emo. The lyrics aren't always deep or even mature, but the music is more than just pretty sounds, so that makes up for it.
