Sad People is a short collection of sparse, tense folk songs recorded live with a few overdubs in Faurholt’s home studio in Aarhus, Denmark. The recordings rough and mildly experimental character might bring early Bright Eyes or Will Oldham’s Palace Music to mind. Faurholt recorded and mixed the songs himself, in between his day job as a teacher, and spending time with his wife and 2-year-old daughter. In the end it was mastered by the Canadian producer Andy Magoffin (Great Lake Swimmers, Royal City).

"Instantly transports the listener to the sort of gothic Americana
hinterland that has been populated by the likes of Will Oldham and Sparklehorse." - Drowned In Sound

"In its essence, Jacob Faurholt’s ‘Corners’ is both beautiful
in its sincerity, and sincere in its beauty." - Gold Flake Paint
