When I first heard this album 15 frigging years ago (man time goes fast) it made an immediate impression on me. Listening back to it now (2012) this album has stood the test of time and is definitely one of my favorites from this period.

To call The Sea and Cake 'indie rock' is not exactly accurate. They're not really rock at all. Though they do use electric guitars, but there is far more in common melodically with late 60s to 70s Bossa Nova and MPB than there is rock or even other 'indie rock' bands.

Vocal wise, Prekop is limited in range, but he makes it work with his relaxed breathy style. This album was the first of the band's extensive use of electronics, which lasted about 4 albums or so, but this one seems to do it the best while leaving the rawness of the band in tact. This is something they have also achieved again recently on their most recent "A Moonlight Butterfly" release.

There's a certain sad vibe (but not depressing) to The Fawn that makes it a special release. It somehow has the ability to awake a nostalgic feeling even upon first listen.

Repeated listening holds up incredibly well. Production is brilliant. Drumming is signature McEntire and some of his best work. Highly recommended.

Surprised to see only one other review for this disc on here. I consider this and "The Biz" as kind of their 15 minutes in the sun, though that does not mean the other discs maybe any less in quality, it was just the period in which I was most amazed and impressed by their sound, there seem to me many great tracks on all their albums but the template seems to have been formed and solidified by this point into a unique kind of mix of technique and style that became all their own and set them apart from the majority of artists working in the college radio/underground scenes. The best tracks here seem to me "Sporting Life", "The Argument", "There You Are", and the closer "Do Now Fairly Well". I've really enjoyed this one over the years it really has a great feel and vibe across the board and has stood the test of time even 15 years after it was introduced to the world!

I thought I would like this album based on the song samples, but I'm not loving it when I hear the whole songs. Seems like one of the singers is sometimes slightly off key.
