I'd like to nominate Origa this week, with her album "Era of Queens".



She is a Russian singer who has worked extensively in Japan. I find her to be very relaxing and a bit spiritual. I'm not sure if she really qualifies as FAIR, because her songs do ten to be a bit electronic in nature, but she sings in various languages and does have a unique sound.

Here are a couple of my favorite tracks:





Enjoy!

^ HaHa! No problem, Sir Cactoos. If you want, I can put in a link or image when the time comes.

Thanks, miss p ! To judge from what you say, and the album cover, I think your choice is going to provide us with a slight change of diet from our usual fare. Well, I´m always ready for a bit of extra sugar or salt !
I´m happy to see you posting again. You seemed to go quiet for a while, at the same time that the demonstrations in Instanbul were hitting the headlines. I was beginning to wonder if you were affected by them at all ...

I went back to Maine for a visit home, but when I came back the protests were raging indeed!

I posted about my experience over at the Turkey thread. It seems to have blown over now, but people are very, very unhappy.

Time to put up the balloons, cut the cake and sing Happy Birthday again, because the FAIR club has now been running for two years. Because the club only attracts a few people, there´s space to mention everyone who has contributed an album nomination this year:-

Roll of Honour:-
stephen - without your consistent enthusiasm I probably would´ve closed the club by now, so many thanks for your support and the great music you have introduced us to.
frownland - hoping you haven´t abandoned us. My apologies if some of your nominations have received limited attention in the polls; I still feel that we are special buddies because we listen to exactly the same two-for-one Beefheart cd !
misspoptart - most promising newcomer, deserves credit for not only exploring strange music, but exploring strange countries too. She wins the crown for Miss FAIR Club 2013 - although you haven´t yet submitted a video of yourself belly-dancing to gypsy music, Miss P. What are you waiting for ??
cenotaph, joy circumcision and Sir Cactoos nominated one album each this year.

Facts and Figures:-
We looked at a total of 18 albums, of which the stand-outs were:-
First Place: Tempest scored 18 points.
Second Place: Agadaz, nominated by stephen, scored 8 points.
Equal Third: Red Hash (from Poor Ol´Po), Kef, and Niyaz (from misspoptart) all scored 5 points each.
Bottom of the Barrel: Worst scoring album was Pianoriental, which I have to own up to, and which got a score of minus one.

(Scores go like this: an excellent vote=2 points, good=1, OK=0, disappointing=-1, awful=-2)

^ Thank you very much for the kind sentiments, misspoptart. You are such a great addition to this part of the forum - and I am taking this, btw, as a firm promise:-

In case anyone´s been wondering, the FAIR club has missed a couple of poll cycles recently, but it isn´t necessarily dead.

It´s been quiet for a variety of reasons - the chief one being a lack of input from MB members. Well, you are what you is, and the FAIR club has always been a minority-interest thread inside a minority-interest forum.

Nevertheless, I prefer to think of it as being dormant rather than dead, like one of those desert plants that only needs a drop of rain to burst into life again. I haven´t put up a poll for a while as I´ve been busy myself at work but I might try opening one more poll on Sept 21 just to see how things pan out.

´Til then, Lisna.
