about

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”.
