This soundscape for SemiDomesticated by Danish songwriter and producer Jacob Faurholt is a compilation of tracks by artists he has worked and played with since moving to Berlin in 2010. His last solo album, Dark Hours (Raw Onion Records in 2011) was one of four released between 2005 and 2011. Well received, the album was described by English site, Drowned In Sound: “Faurholt instantly transports the listener to the sort of gothic Americana hinterland that has been populated by the likes of Will Oldham and Sparklehorse.”
Faurholt has played a long line of concerts including support slots for CocoRosie, The Black Heart Procession, TEEN, and fellow Danes Efterklang. Since leaving Denmark for Berlin, he started noise-pop project Crystal Shipsss, which has so far released one EP and two full length albums. The latest, Dirty Dancer, came out in September 2013, and was described as “experimental, unpredictable, brutally honest and relevant” by the Danish site XQ28.
We hope you enjoy!
