He might be Danish by birth, but from the first dirgey guitar chords of the titular opener of his third album Dark Hours, Jacob Faurholt instantly transports the listener to the sort of gothic Americana hinterland that has been populated by the likes of Will Oldham and Sparklehorse. A place where, on record, the beautiful side of life is never too far from the darker side. The distortion on ‘Dark Hours’ doesn’t bolster the skeletal guitar so much as it lends it a lingering decrepitude which compliments Faurholt’s creaky vocals and gives the chorus of wheezing squeezebox and subtly brushed slo-mo drums the feel of a gorgeously meek rallying cry.
His sinister side is most fully indulged on the penultimate ‘So Far Away’, which is built around the creeping horror movie tension of a tinkling piano, adding distant reverb-laden ‘Be My Baby’ drums a la Jesus & Mary Chain, acoustic twang and the muffled lo-fi sound of distorted bass, all of which eventually dissolves into a drift of unsettled squeezeboxes. For what it is it’s effectively executed, but it comes off a little over-cooked, not helped by the forced monotone vocals.
