Editors’ Notes

Tim Fite is a Brooklyn-based musician, ace wordsmith, and something of a studio wizard: working with a TV on the Radio–meets–Dr. Dog palette of sound, Fite recorded various instrumental parts with friends and musicians, later slicing, pasting, and looping tracks into songs. From the first strains of the opener “Hold Me All Night,” with its full-bodied, rollicking, indie-rock buoyancy, to the funereal juju of the title track (“This ain’t the way/our bodies were meant to be found” is a repeated line), Ain’t Ain’t Ain’t is filled with smart, ambitiously hybrid songs that hit the bull's-eye every time. Fite has left the hip-hop beats of Gone Ain’t Gone behind (he was half of Little T and One Track Mike: “Shaniqua,” anyone?). Here, he filters the experimental feel of Fair Ain’t Fair with a more straightforward indie rock aesthetic. Fife’s clever, pointed lyrics on issues like loneliness and bullying resonate over oscillating synths, horns, foot-stomping wood blocks, accordions, and more. “We Are All Teenagers” hits the target dead-on, with a hope-giving, anthemic chorus capable of lifting all of us on a bad day.

Customer Reviews

Still the greatest!

I've been listening to Tim Fite since a little after Gone Ain't Gone was released, found his cd by chance in a bargain bin at a record store. Bought it because judging by the artwork, it had to be good. He has been my favorite musician ever since. He is one of the most innovative, creative and original artists of our time in my opinion. This album is such a great album to end his Ain't series with. It's different in the sense that he recorded and mixed samples and pieces of larger recordings, giving it a more band feel. It's great! I love this album as well as all of his music. Definitely a must have!

Ain't

One of the most entertaining performers that I've seen in a long time! The new record is great!

All around amazing artist

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Brooklyn-based Tim Fite created one of the most talked-about albums of 2007 by taking a novel approach to releasing a concept set about hip-hop and the consumer culture — giving it away for free. Fite was raised in a rural community along the border of Pennsylvania and New Jersey by parents who raised him with a sense of frugality and social purpose. He developed an interest in music and began creating tunes that mixed samples of found music with his own organic instrumental accompaniment and...
