The lyrics of Todd Fay have been listened to by mln, as the multi-instrumentalist for the New Pornographers and as the crooner inside “That One Night” the music that centered it to whatever is presumably the shuddering ep of the dance “The Office” 2008 “Dinner Party.” The funny, actually pining distribution isn’t that much real to Fancey’s art, his new album, “Star Dreams” (out today), awards from the year 1980, which also saw the release of Benny Mardones “Into the Night” a Yacht Rock masterpiece not unlike in feeling. The 10-track video, presented under The Flag of Faancey, has been co-produced by Vancouver song senior Allan Rodger, with soccer donations from singer Micae and New Pornographers beat Joe Seiders, and how he traded his pieces for the Yamaha DX-7 electric piano/synthesize rho. That instrument’s component felt discovered their way through some of the’ 80s greatest music by Whitney Houston, Kenny Loggins and Luther Vandross, I felt better “Star Dreams” the use of the Korg Poly synth and Oberheim drum machine. “This album probably still sounds ’70s-ish because I can’t really help myself” Fancey admits to Variety. “I was thinking about the golden year 1980. It’s fascinating to me, the changeover from the’ 70s to the ’80s. It was so fast, in a way. Like I said, good luck finding Adidas’ Roms in 1980. Stan Smith — where did the stripes go? The wide legs, see you later!. But then some of the music, like Air Supply, it’s the bridge between the two decades — something nice to listen to, which was totally the opposite of the punk from the mid’ 70s. It’s crazy what they were up against. They hated the stuff I love listening to (laughs).” Micae’s lyrics push the album’s dreamy experience, from the Pretenders lineup “Out on the Streets!” to the academy was dance-worthy “Across the Stage.” Reaching into the archives, closer “The Best Best” it is based on lyrics Fancey wrote as a teenager when he was in a band called Kill with his cousin ( “Kill the dick!, because of its high capacity for sulphur dioxide, a gaseous solution to a heavy metal content that might break down as a form of ignition, we had all been attempting to be around Kiss” he says). “I’d given Micae MP3s of my guide vocals, and I thought she was going to sing them an octave higher” Francey tells us. “She wound up singing to them octave lower, and I loved how they sounded. It was kind of a revelation to hire and use singers and feel like I actually wanted to listen to the finished product. It wasn’t like that, OK, I just have to get this done by putting vocals on it.” Fancey says Seider’s donations were the biggest success “icing -” at the end of the hearing “really ’80s’ ed everything up. We were in Australia just before the pandemic, and he just sat down at a piano and played Billy Joel perfectly. I was like that, What is the right sort of therapy? Can you please play keyboard on my album? We kind of wanted a marriage between the mid ’80s soul of Debarge and Atlantic Starr. It’s tricky with a DX7. You’ll get some accusations about it being cheesy, but I like the sound of it.” When Fancey opened its doors in the early 2000s, the band played some live shows, and since then I have been married to my daughter, the focus was mostly on the audio. “Even though I’m in the New Pornographers and love doing it, I don’t know how much of a performer I actually am” Fancey tells, half-jokingly chalking it up to the dearth of concerts that arrived in Halifax when he was thriving. “From my other records, I sang on a lot of the songs. But I guess on this one, we’re thinking of playing live because Micae is into that.” In the meantime, The New Photographers have covered The jobs in The follow-up to 2019’s big newscast “In the Morse Code of Brake Lights” which will be launched next year. “I did my guitar parts for it in the worst part of the pandemic at home, and it was the most uplifting experience, which was so needed” Fancey tells. “I had so much fun with it and going back and forth with it [group member] Carl [Newman] and email in a way we hadn’t really done before.” Fancey continues to receive love from a friend “The Office” thanks to the fan community “That One Night.” Fancey got the gig through her friend Alicen Schneider, a New Pornographers fan who also happened to be a creative executive at NBC, a sushi dinner in Vancouver. “I informed her that I enjoyed The British edition of ‘The Office, and that I thought the American one would bite” Fancey remembers. “notwithstanding all that, I had been positioned into the sprinting for the music, and I was desperate to get it. It was a little bit of a disaster because the creators protested, but there was a long wait.” Although it is never explicitly stated, the song suggests that Jan Levinson’s character is a character (Melora Hardin;) had previously seduced her assistant Hunter into losing her virginity to her ( “You took me by the way/Made me a man/That one night/You made everything okay”). The episode ends with Levinson and his boyfriend Michael Scott residing in The house (Steve Carell) After they and their guests waited hours for Levinson’s osso buco dinner to finish cooking, they were in a domestic dispute, while Pam (Jenna Fischer) and Jim (John Krasinski) the CD containing the song is a respite from the insanity of the gathering they attended. “Maybe it’s just a fluke to be part of it” Fancey says when asked why he thinks the song continues to have such comedic appeal. “I don’t stream the EP that often because I don’t really like to hear myself chant like a beginner, and this is what they informed me to be doing. T here its more of a smooth edition where I have chanted a little best. The word ‘awkward’ comes up with this display frequently, so it might have been a little bit of a weird guidepost on broadcasting. It’s also just truly great, truly entertaining, when you discover all these actors. I still get a message or multiple about this every month. Yeah, I’ll accept it. It might be my claim to fame.” Rolling Stone Magazine “One Night Alternate Lyrics”.
