Artist: OLAUSSON, JAKOB
Title: Morning & Sunrise
Format: CD
Label: De Stijl
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"At some point all great explorers, from Amundsen to Kishan Singh Rawat, come to an opening up and cast their minds across a big space. A clearing, a promontory, a look out from a place no ones been before. Jakob Olausson ventured deep on Moonlight Farm, his debut for De Stijl in the winter of 2005. His singular expression returns on Morning and Sunrise, an explorers codex, a gaze through to whats more important and less seen. The path yet traveled and the sun arcing over it. Morning and Sunrise is a different record from Moonlight Farm. Neither progression nor the preferred natural progression describe how. There is more electric guitar and it really whisks at your earbones, the playing is beautiful. Jakobs singing glows more. It gives light and shows love as it reassures, makes no false promises, says: You can be understood. Honest as the elements, whether you count four or 118. Words like loner will be hung on Morning and Sunrise, and thats okay, we associate clarity this potent with solitude. And this could be the most lucid psychedelic record ever, morning is just so clear, and anyway, its not really loner, because you are there all along. Dont we all just want to know how the next person gets along? Come out into the morning and see." - De Stijl.

Title: Moonlight Farm
Format: LP

Price: $16.50
"If Skip Spence were somehow, instead of finding his white-frocked self stuck in the rat-infested hole that was Bellvue, transplanted to the pine forests north of Duluth in a sonic nest of gimbri, bells, shakers and clothed in Tibetan silk, one would come slightly closer to the reality of Jakob Olaussons migratory whims. To be sure, that foggy and only slightly inland empire of synapse-twisters like Ben Chasny offers a step on the trodden trail, but this isnt the same road weve traveled before. Olaussons huge ears protect him from the cold and keep the sun from turning his face to a series of desert crags, as his compositions slowly fade down the walls of four-track bedroom artistry into atemporal suites that shrink huge expanses and are a bellows to the microcosmic. Enter the Moonlight Farm." - Destijl.

Title: Moonlight Farm
Format: CD
Label: Destijl
Country: USA
Price: $12.50
"Jakob Olausson is a farmer in the south of Sweden, from Landskrona, and he works there in the fields of sugar beets. Not to re-hero-ize the life of the prole, but the workday sun has had a clear influence: Moonlight Farm is a rec made on a dime, in a dime-sized bedroom apartment, and it transcends all the limitations that that scenario has thusly taught us to expect. A real "statement", in the micro-politics of personal resistance / expression in a globally commodified life, and were here to sell it to you. Moonlight Farm is comprised of ten songs, somehow both comforting and unsettling, concerned with the classic subjects: the garbage, the flowers, ones mother, and the love of them all. Laid thick with a vague dissonance, they possess a mask of fog / haze, but the trail between writer / performer / song is not often trodden in such a deftly crystalline manner. Enter the Moonlight Farm. "From one loner to another, this is everything that the phrase private press conjures up and more. A modern classic. " - David Keenan / The Wire. "Well, no reason for me to make music anymore. This kid hit it." - Ben Chasny / Six Organs of Admittance. Jakob has toured extensively thru Europe and somewhat thru the States, sharing the stage with Samara Lubelski, Times New Viking, MV EE & the Bummer Road, James Blackshaw, Charlie Nothing and many others." - Destijl.
