CRYSTAL SHIPSSS SAYS STRANGELY...YAY!
Monday, 23 July 2012 09:02
 

Usually artists tend to beef up their sound as they travel through their careers. Many of those of the lo-fi ilk start off that way out of necessity and over time move toward cleaning up the rough edges and ironing out the kinks. Danish DIY and experimental folk and psychedelic rock artist Jacob Faurholt has seemingly decided to take a different direction. As Crystal Shipsss, his music has got more off beat and fragile with the release of Yay, his debut record under that moniker and since 2002, sixth overall.

Now firmly settled in the vibrant city of Berlin, in Yay, Faurholt has produced an album of exquisite delicateness, employing brittle falsetto vocals alongside elements of fuzzy electric and acoustic guitar, ukelele?, understated keys, drums (of the artificial and traditional variety) and subtle percussion. But you somehow get the feeling that's there is something a little amiss here as there's a dark gloomy feel to the record at times. 'Burning Kingdom' is testament to that as is the track on offer below.

Most may not get Yay, and that's a pity. On the surface, it may seem an innocuous, even lazy record coming in as it does at just 23 minutes and sounding all scuffed up, even weathered at times in its DIY approach. Indeed, most tracks sit under two minutes. But rather than being a weakness, it turns out to be a great cohesive strength. If you love lo-fi, experimental music that unashamedly unique, you can choose to grab Yay on three formats, green mint 10" vinyl, cassette or digitally at the link below. Meanwhile, get a free download of the strangely sublime 'My Dark Slimy Soul'. and check out the video for 'Uh Huh'

As you can see from the picture above, its the green mint for us!
