The Bella Fayes - Far From the Discos 
By Kevin Wierzbicki

This Portland four-piece has the hipster attitude to go with their modern rock sound, a quality that incorporates a Jet-like strut with the aloofness of the Strokes. Lael Alderman is the head rooster for the Bella Fayes and he crows like big daddy Mick Jagger on “Back in Line,” even drawling out the word “line” like the head Stone would. Alderman is also the band’s songwriter, and he’s very good at crafting four minute radio rockers, even when he’s flashing-back to a ’60s sound, like on “Uptight!” The hippie-era cut sounds like something that the Jefferson Airplane would’ve come up with when they were shrooming hard. If you’re a fan of the television program Everwood you may have heard “I do Believe” during one of the shows; the song has a buoyant optimism that fits perfectly into that little victorious, cinematic moment. The band slows things down for “Way out Out There” as Alderman switches to his best bedside-manner, setting up the album’s three rocker close-out.
