    When Fair debuted with 2006ís The Best Worst-Case Scenario, the indie rockers were immediately heralded as an innovative buzz band known just as much for sophisticated songwriting as infectious appeal. In the four years between that underground blockbuster and the brand new Disappearing World, members Aaron Sprinkle (vocals, guitar), Erick Newbill (guitar), Joey Sanchez (drums, percussion) and Nick Barber (bass) havenít just refined that celebrated formula, but threw some musical and lyrical curve balls into the already alluring atmosphere.

    ďMusically I wanted to really tap into my influences, which are mostly Ď60s and Ď70s and lot of Ď80s too,Ē says Sprinkle, who longtime listeners will also recognize as leader of Poor Old Lu and Rose Blossom Punch turned solo star, not to mention all-star producer (Anberlin, Acceptance, Copeland, The Almost, Demon Hunter, Kutless, Jeremy Camp). ďAnd thatís really the feel of this record- a lot of very retro moments wearing those influences on our sleeve. We approached this record doing exactly what we wanted to do, and fortunately for listeners, we like well structured pop songs. The recordís more dynamic and exciting in some places than the last one, but itís also more fragile and sincere in other places.Ē

    As is Fair and Sprinkleís tradition, that type of contagiousness is coupled with soul-bearing depth throughout Disappearing World. In addition to being the front manís most deliberate, it also packs his most substantial weight to date.

    ďHonestly in the past, Iíve written lyrics and kind of figured out what theyíre about after the fact,Ē he confesses with a laugh. ďBut there was none of that on this record, just real substance that I could connect with in hopes that it would further connect with the people who listen with themes of redemption and grace.Ē

    Of course, anyone who looks at Sprinkleís track record in Fair or otherwise could point to the fact that he continues to ascend the ladder of success, but no matter how exponential the growth, the switch hitter insists on creative integrity every step of the way. And after a scan of the tracks throughout Disappearing World, itís evident that trend of respect will continue, while simultaneously marking Sprinkleís most satisfied state since kicking off his career as a teenager in the early 1990s.

    ďIíve never been this excited about something Iíve done before,Ē he promises. ďI donít question a single moment on this record and thatís a huge thing for me because normally Iím incredibly insecure when it comes to my own music. Iím so happy with every moment and I owe that to the guys in the band because itís a great place for me to bounce ideas off of. In that regard, itís scary to put something like that out because if people donít respond well to it, youíll feel hurt for being so vulnerable. But I feel confident that people who like Fair are going to like it and Iím hoping the rest of the world will too, even if itís just a few thousand people at a time.Ē

    My problem with this band is that most of their songs sound the same. What i mean is that the vocals are predictable and not very exciting. I do like some of they're songs though. they're not bad!
