Jad Fair & R. Stevie Moore – Fairmoore CD 2002 $15
Two of our favorite people on the Earth kick back and rap, swing, roll and sweat on 20+ tracks.
“A wild and wooly ride of childish humor and wacky home-recorded pop” – modernfix.com.
“There is a childlike quality to this music … FairMoore, even at its most “out”, is full of uncomplicated pop songs expressing unabashed (and unashamed) feelings… Cherish this record’s cheerful oddness, it’s unabashed romanticism, and Jad’s ability to unselfconsciously revel in the smallest pleasures” – John Dougan, Pop Matters.
“The best album Fair has been involved with since the heyday of Half Japanese, and one of Moore’s most enjoyable efforts in years” – Stewart Mason, CDUniverse.
“Fair’s guileless poetry is relentlessly optimistic but never self-conscious or “ironic”: How many other grown-ups in the year 2002 can pull off a song about chocolate donuts? … A lovely, heartfelt effort that shows both in top form” – Dave Mandl, The Brooklyn Rail. Rotated on KTRU, WFMU and KZSU.
