on Fairfax - Nate Scheible's beautiful new tape - the Washington-based musician soundtracks a heart-wrenching love story. within, an unknown woman recounts her inner-most thoughts with her distant lover and it's hard not to feel invested in their joint story - there are lows and highs; crises and victories. Fairfax is simply unique in both concept and execution - it's engaging, moving and full of refined musical ideas.
digital bonus: the full cassette found at a northern Virginia thrift store utilized for the voiceover samples throughout Fairfax (you can hear the story from its beginning to its end)
"The music on Fairfax is dreamy and dramatic, meditative and somber, subtly echoing the emotions of its found words." - Bandcamp Daily
"Fairfax is a work of gentle genius... Scheible's woozy pallette of tape-manipulations and decaying loops is augmented by his own wordless singing and keys, not to mention various guest instrumentalists adding dabs of vibraphone, euphonium, sax, and double bass." - The Quietus / Spool's Out
"It makes me feel in high school again. It makes me feel like beginning in love. Should I kiss her? Where am I?" - Tiny Mix Tapes
"An ambient/experimental tape that feels plucked from David Lynch’s brain, both sonically and thematically." - Washington City Paper
"It gives the illusion that you’re sitting with her, sharing her doubts, desires, fears, wishes. An immersive exercise in distant compassion." - KZSU Stanford Radio
