This Fair City: With their long awaited follow up to 2009’s Broken Surfaces EP, the
Portland, Oregon band has curated tracks spanning nearly five years
of songwriting since becoming a quartet. The eclectic yet cohesive
nature of the self-titled album chronicles a band fine tuning their art in
an effort to create something unique and recognizable. Many of the
tracks have been performed at shows throughout the Northwest for a
long while, allowing the songs to evolve into pieces better suited for
the direction This Fair City is headed. The new album is a springboard
for a band moving forward from a lengthy transitional period; finding
their collective voice and looking towards the future.
