 Notes & Reviews
Fire builds upon his signature samples here, but with a more restrained, mature hand. Famous for mining record store bargain bins for long-forgotten CDs, Tim takes tracks from their musical obscurity, dusts them off and reburies them in his own tunes. But now, with FAIR AIN't FAIR, come the voices, layer upon layer. Fite plays with melody in a way he never has before. Harmony rules, and the results are a collection of exquisite songs. Features members of Sufjan Stevens' band and My Brightest Diamond as guest vocals.
