Brand new song & video from Nicola Donà AKA Horrible Present. This man can’t write a bad song and that’s why we’ll be releasing more of his music later in the year on Cakes and Tapes.
Jacob Faurholt used to be Crystal Shipsss by himself. But Crystal Shipsss is now a full blown band and they’re releasing a new EP full of slow burners like “Listening to Devil Town”, a song about, you’re right, listening to Daniel Johnston’s “Devil Town”. Crystal Shipsss EP is out next May 6th on digital + cassette. Daniel would be proud and I’ll probably throw a cassette into the stage when I see him performing at Optimus Primavera Sound by the end of May.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who got to see Jacob Faurholt live in Portugal earlier this year, you might be wondering what’s he up to these days. The good news is that he’s releasing a brand new EP, Geek Love is the Best Love – actually a Thurston Moore quote from his show Jacob attended in Guimarães, Portugal – next Monday on his own label Raw Onion Records. Expect a tape release soon. The great news is that you can already listen and download (for free) the six-track EP on his Bandcamp. Some of those songs were written while on tour through the westernmost part of the Iberian Peninsula. Probably in my own living room. I’d be really proud if someone got the inspiration to write such a song like “Guided by Voices” or “Northern Lights” while sitting on my couch. Wouldn’t you?

Horrible present, haunted past.
If you run a somewhat high profile site/blog you surely receive dozens of emails per week. Some you don’t even bother to read and throw them in the garbage bin just after reading the headline (sorry), you might find others slightly interesting but not enough to post or there’s not enough time to do it, others contain some great, perfectly bloggable music inside and then there’s this rare sight: a sincere email where only a ten word sentence is written, alongside with a Soundcloud/Bandcamp link pointing to an awesome song performed by some perfectly unknown unsigned artist. This is the kind of email that made me want to start my own label, and this was the case with Horrible Present. “Classics at Night” was instantly gone into repeat mode and a couple of months later his exquisitely titled EP 54, I love you but it’s time to get off – which consists of his old EP 54 plus some new songs and b-sides – was released on our label Cakes and Tapes.
