Jacob Faurholt - Are You In The Mood For Love
Jacob Faurholt is an Danish singer/songwriter who sings primarily in English. His music is a little dark but folk none-the-less. I would liken his music to that of Iron & Wine or even Nick Drake at times. Things are all dark and bleak with Faurholt. Take "Let's Build a House On This Ground". The subject matter is a little somber but the whole feel ends up being quite uplifting. I really enjoy the arrangements on Are You In The Mood For Love. You might say that they are minimal but they really work for his style of songs. "Rusty Country Cage" is a great song with a little more of an Americana feel to it rather than the primary folk sound of most of the rest of the album. I do hear a bit of a Connor Oberst sound to Fauholt's vocals. That's it though, not the music or the arrangements.
Jacob is the sort of musician that would be a hometown hero. You know the type, the ones that every local music fan flocks to see but has a hard time breaking out of his comfort zone. I think if anything will do it for Faurholt it will be this album. There really isn't one thing wrong with it. If you like one song you'll like the whole collection. All 10 songs deserve to be on here. I don't know what else to suggest to Jacob for mass exposure other than touring, perfect booking for your local coffee house.
