MidPointMusic: great presentation with @topicdesign at the AMA luncheon Friday. enjoyed the folks we met and learned much!
Fairmount Girls are an established independent rock band from Cincinnati Ohio USA. They specialize in smooth fucking harmonies so thick you can't tell who's singing which parts . They throw in transistor radio noise, trumpet, and a 1967 "sport" Farfisa organ . Fairmount Ohio is the birthplace of Annie Oakley.The original fairmount girls Melissa Fairmount and Dana Hamblen are now completed with Randy Cheek of the Ass Ponys, Pat Hennessy
and Steve Girton resulting in their longest and strongest lineup yet.
The changing lineup has forced the girls to prosper and reinvent
themselves resulting in 3 full length albums
Eleven Minutes To Anywhere
and FOREVER ] plus multiple singles and compilations .
the FG's have showcased their music at CMJ, NXNE, MPMF, Ladyfest, and countless
opening slots including Guided By Voices, the White Stripes, 1990's, Scrawl, Helium,
Forget Cassettes, Fruit Bats, Moe Tucker, Jonathon Richmond, etc.
Displayed on their piano are CEA awards for best new artist and indie artist of the year
as well the coveted CAMMY award .
Fairmount Girls are steeped in pop culture and am radio.
They recall influences from motown and bubblegum and combine
this with a DIY punk aesthetic and indie rock to make something their own.
Thick vocal harmonies and Farfisa organ are the trademark FG sound !
