Fairlanes Avenue is Eight Minutes to Twilight's first self-produced, self-recorded album. They are Josh Wright, Josh Howard, and Jason Janofsky, who joined the band shortly after Fairlanes Avenue was recorded.

Reviewer Magazine said...

"The horn that interpolates in and out of the music on âFairlanes Avenueâ adds such a beautiful melancholia to it. I was in a real lethargic, empty mood when I listened to this CD for the first time and it was the perfect soundtrack to my disposition at the moment, it didnât grate or bore or annoy, it just was the perfect atmosphere and flowed smoothly through my brain.

Eight Minutes to Twilight is the brainchild of two Joshes: Messrs. Wright & Howard, a couple of San Diegans who have ditched the typical power-pop vacuity that is associated with Southern California and instead have focused on introverted, emotive compositions that are pleasing musically as well as lyrically apt. âFairlanes Avenueâ is their greeting to the world; it says âHere I am; I hope youâll like me, but please donât get too close and smother meâ¦â The sad English horn noodles throughout the opener, âCollisionâ and really complements the sentiments well. The stark, quietude of âGoodnight Prayersâ is haunting. Itâs a shivering, lonely cry in the dark and then âMattâ picks up a tad, bringing a hopeful bit of optimism to bear.

While the ethos and attitude is rock ânâ roll, the music isnât brash, ebullient or jarring; itâs more of a brooding, cerebral crooning and a plaintive cry for some kind of release from whatever pain it was born from. Fortunately, though, its wryness and coy jadedness, reminiscent of the hip smugness of Ben Folds, keep âFairlanes Avenueâ from sounding like so much dirge music. But, really, thereâs something about this that will not fit in a box so itâs very hard to pin any kind of label on it, I mean, itâs not really rock, per se, but neither is it folk nor jazz, country, soul nor R & B, itâs just honest, bare music and that is so refreshing for a change!"
