My Fair Fiend – Making Monsters
The current fascination with all things zombie is wearing a bit thin with me, but none the less I absolutely love the second long-player from minor-key alt-rockers My Fair Fiend, Making Monsters (October 2015). Those who have been following along here for a while will remember the wonderful self-titled debut long-player and review for Murder A Dream posted here a little over two years ago. Well, nothing has changed except perhaps some additional polish and song-craft.
Still focused on the morose, Callie (Moore) Crofts and company have a way of making rock tunes that don’t sound boring within the context of a single genre. Instrumentation has a way of adding the appropriate elements of ragged rage (Tourniquet, Dandelion), mellow understatement (Play With Fire), or somewhere in the middle (Making Monsters). Callie’s vocals are a perfect instrument in themselves, often adding rhythm as well as lyric delivery. As a band, My Fair Fiend is sounding more and more cohesive, with a couple of years since the debut under their belt.
