The Faint



THE FAINT//

Omaha quintet, The Faint, are back with their first album in four years. 'Fasciinatiion', The Faint's fifth album, is the first in the band's ten-year history to be written, recorded, produced, and released entirely on their own, and is released on World's Fair/Co Operative Music this week.

Fasciination is an album that draws on many defining facets of The Faint's sound, while remaining completely different from anything else they've put out. Todd's voice sounds less human than ever before; the bass lines are more mangled, keyboards spiral and squeal out of control; electronic pings and stabs invade the melodies; the lyrical anxiety and disdain of previous albums pervades almost every song.
