The Faint

MP3: The Faint - Mirror Error

Fuck yeah, so here we are on the grand new release Tuesday and we've got a brand spanking new record from The Faint, everybody's old friend. "Fasciinatiion" may not be light on the letter 'I', but it is light in the sound. What? It's true, but it's fantastic.

The first 2 songs (that includes single "The Geeks Were Right") will tease you into thinking it's more of the same of their sound found on "Wet From Birth" (I'll let you decide if that's a good thing or not, I know where I stand), but come song number three you'll see the true direction of the album. It's all very subdued, relaxed dance music that sounds iffy on paper but in your ears makes total sense.

I can imagine a lot of energy live when these duders are playing these songs, but in the meantime the dance punks finally have an album for 4AM drives and to soundtrack their slumber. Dig it.

"Fasciinatiion" is out now from blank.wav records.
