The Canadian artist has a New Wave-flavored LP due out in November on My Favorite Robot Records.
Jake Fairley has unveiled details for his next album as Fairmont, Automaton.
Blending indie and club sensibilities has long been Fairley's calling card, but it's an approach that's especially pronounced on Automaton. Every track on the album features his own lead vocals, drenched in reverb and paired with vintage-style synths and drum machines to create a sound that's very new wave. The album will mark his debut on Toronto's My Favorite Robot Records, following past releases on labels like Border Community and Traum Schallplatten. It will be out in November digitally and on CD.
