Denmark - Full Moon 184 - 09/12/11
Raw Onion Records
Jacob Faurholt follows an impressive record with a darker, rawer but equally strong new one. The opening title song is sad, but has a hopeful quality that shows in
each slow chord.
"Black Lake Lodge" is a slow and undulating song complete with a tortured lead vocal. Faurholt can brood with the best of them. "Creatures of the Sea" is a track with
an intriguingly odd lyric and a tune that stands out. The backing vocal is dreamy and sweet. "Hope still Floats in the Sea" ends the album on a suitably neat note. Faurholt's
vocal is disjointed and distant but still full of presence. The refrain will haunt you for days. It's another great record by by Faurholt.
