Jacob Faurholt & Sweetie Pie Wilbur

I really need to dig deeper into the back catalog of Jacob Faurholt & Sweetie Pie Wilbur.  The “Beck” like vox and deadpan delivery on ‘As the Ship Came In’  mellows even the most frayed nerves.  Heck, this works even better than my black leather-bound super-massage chair that liquefies my muscles and softens my brittle bones. Enjoy!

MySpace Bio In 2005 the Danish trio Jacob Faurholt & Sweetie Pie Wilbur released their debut-album “Queen of Hope” on the Danish label Quartermain Records. On “Queen of Hope” you’ll hear an under-acted, spontaneous and intimate pop with little mistakes and disharmonies. To support the album Jacob Faurholt & Sweetie Pie Wilbur played a long line of concerts, including Popkomm 2005 in Berlin, support for CocoRosie, Grizzly Bear and Efterklang. Sweetie Pie Wilbur was disbanded in 2007.

Faurholt released his solo debut “Hurrah Hurrah” in November 2007. It is an album of lo-fi folk songs with outbursts of noise and it features vocal contribution from Johanna and Miriam E Berhan from the Swedish duo Taxi Taxi!. “Hurrah Hurrah” was released in Germany in 2008 and the release was followed by a tour where Faurholt, among others, shared the stage with Slaraffenland.

Faurholt’s third album “Are you in the mood for love?” followed in February 2009 on the Danish independent label Slow Shark Records, a sparse atmospheric singer-songwriter album with drunken backing vocals, recorded live with Danish producer Kristian Westergård, it was greeted with fine reviews in the Danish press. By normanrecords.com it was described as “slightly gothic folk that may well appeal to lovers of the work of (definately) Adrian Crowley & (possibly) early Bright Eyes”.

In November 2009 Faurholt released an EP with his new project Why Write? on the Canadian based label What A Mess! Records. The American producer Kramer (Galaxie 500, Low, Daniel Johnston) mixed the songs, which have a richer instrumentation than Faurholt’s previous work, and draws comparison to fuzzy noise-pop bands from the early nineties. Faurholt is currently living in Berlin.
