Jacob Faurholt is one of Denmark’s most prolific songwriters. He releases music both solo and under the moniker Crystal Shipsss. His music ranges from lo-fi home recordings, 90es inspired indie rock to ambient drone metal.
A Lake of Distortion, Faurholt’s 6th solo album, is a collection of fragile folk songs and fuzzy lo-fi pop carefully sequenced to work as a whole. It consists of 10 twisted love songs filled with joy and anxiety. The album was mainly written, recorded & mixed in Faurholt’s bedroom (in between work and other daily obligations) and the intimacy and urgency from that setting is apparent throughout the album. After recording the basic tracks Faurholt invited musician friends to work on the songs, among others Soren Brothers (Man Meets Bear), William Kudahl (Infants), Claus Frøhlich (Younolovebunny), Samuel Gray (Sam Gray Singing) and Jens Christian Madsen (Tjaere+Fjer). The recorded tracks were exchanged between them by e-mail. The albums short, melodic and fragile songs draws references to Bee Thousand era Guided By Voices, early Sparklehorse, and Daniel Johnston who is namedropped on the albums last song “Listening To Devil Town”.

Starting in 2011 when Johnstown, PA artist Jake Dryzal was only 12 years old, Blue Navy was conceived through his love of indie music and surrealism. Crafting fictional stories that dealt with relationship strife or dreamlike circumstances, Blue Navy released several demo EPs between 2011 and 2013. Jake took a hiatus from Blue Navy in 2014 to focus on his post-metal project, Pallor, and later returned to Blue Navy after the breakup with a girlfriend. Influenced by slowcore, dream pop, and shoegazing music, Jake released his debut album, "Mine" in early 2016 to critical acclaim. Another bout of unrequited love hit Jake in early 2017, resulting in the production of his newest album, "Ours," which was released that May.
"Ours" is Blue Navy's sophomore LP - another concept album that covers topics such as heartbreak, loss, and memories following the destruction of a meaningful relationship. Along with introspective, confessional lyrics, "Ours" contains balanced elements of stripped-down acoustic folk, as well as dense layers of lush, ethereal, and reverberated ambient soundscapes.

The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
