Nate Scheible's "work of gentle genius" – Fairfax – is arriving on vinyl & all digital services in February 2022. Remastered by Lawrence English and featuring brand new artwork, this edition uncovers a completely new side of the "dreamy and dramatic, meditative and somber" album by the American artist.

"Few albums have stuck with me like Nate Scheible’s Fairfax. In fact, I feel lucky to have had my copy of the original tape to drop into over several years, some heartbreaks, a few streaks of loneliness; when I’ve not felt terribly well, or couldn’t face reflecting for fear of noticing personal decay.

With fresh treatment from mastering maestro, Lawrence English, this new version has brought out fresh new colours in Scheible’s elegant composition. The moments of icy isolation are sharper, while the embrace of the album’s finale is warmer and heartier than ever. Scheible’s found polaroids on the front of the package also fit so aptly that they barely even feel new. The album’s allure and message of craving is more powerful than ever.

To anybody who hears this album, she’s a great heroine of literature, the voice of Fairfax. Her frank admissions of longing and weakness are infectious cries of hope. She’s a powerful woman, unashamed, the innermost voice of reason, grasping the world together selflessly. I wanted to tell her about the times when things weren’t so good. I want to tell her now too, just how well things can turn out.

Scheible’s beds of oozing and luscious melodies, decaying on reels or tape, flinging out from plucked bass strings, or rising from a struck vibraphone, are a truly loving soundtrack to this mysterious voice found on a tape that came into the artist’s possession. The audio letters reveal the woman’s story of painful hope and self-gifted redemption, while the click of the saxophone and moan of Scheible’s wobbly piano snippets, they sing her – no ~our~ – mood right back to us. Fairfax reminds us that, like the protagonist, we’re all gonna do something, ~someday~."
