Directionless? Not

July 3rd, 2011

Today was one of those days you just wanna hide in an air conditioned cell or regret you were not born in an igloo. I was sitting outside at this coffee shop mumbling a special mantra to forget I was actually dripping while large stains of sweat appear on my thin summer shirt, as I realized middle eastern summer has fully and shamelessly arrived and so did his regular companions, horrible humidity, sweat, mosquitos, heavy unpleasant urban smells. I have brought my camera with me while realizing strong colors are fading and turning dull, so I tried to end this miserable brunch as quickly as I could and ran back to my air conditioned bedroom to chill with this new album I have received from Jacob Faurholt, a former educated teacher, and a very talented musician at present. The first sounds from this Callahan/ Bonnie Prince Billy school of songwriting, turned my summer sweat to goose bumps. I usually try to escape my own Dark hours, but I guess writing an album like this and confronting troubling issues could be as fruitful and therapeutic as going through psychoanalysis. This is a brave album to make and while its not for everyone those of you who are willing to walk the extra mile, do that and you`ll thank me.

Amongst my favorites on this dark and beautiful record are ‘Directionless’, ‘Dark hours’, ‘Themes of a troubled mind’, ‘The hoax’, ‘Creatures in the sea’, and ‘Untitled’.

In January 2010 Faurholt has moved from his Danish hometown Aarhus to Berlin, to pursue his musical career. Faurholt has supported bands like CocoRosie, The Black Heart Procession, The Handsome Family, Grizzly Bear, and fellow Danes Efterklang. His new album , ‘Dark hours’, out August 15th on Raw onion records, features guest appearances by our beloved Soley from the Icelandic group Seabear and Nona Marie Invie from American band Dark Dark Dark, and experimental musician Marc Kellaway, who got creative freedom to make further recordings and eventually to mix the album…
