Crystal Shipsss, “Yay” (Cakes and Tapes, 2011)

Our label Cakes and Tapes has just returned with its 17th installment. Yay is the debut album from Crystal Shipsss, a sideproject of our favorite Danish songwriter Jacob Faurholt, who released one of the best albums of the year earlier on. Yay leaves all that quietness behind, drenches itself in reverb, it even tries to stab you at times in all its low fidelity glory, but it’s still infected by melodies that’ll stick in your head for hours. Mastered by master James Plotkin (Khanate, OLD, Jodis), Crystal Shipsss is quite the antithesis of Faurholt’s solo work but that doesn’t make it less interesting. Discover it below.

Yay is now available on digital and limited edition cassette (50 white C30 tapes) formats. Streaming is free, of course.
