Während ich Jacob Faurholts “Corners” hörte, kamen mit folgende Musikstile und Künstler in den Sinn: Indiepop, Singer/Songwriter, Folk, Lo-Fi, Indierock, Gomez, Malcolm Middleton, Adam Green und Sophia. Weitere Referenzen finden sich bei disagreement.net:
Corners is thus the best solo effort under the name Jacob Faurholt so far. He claims bands like Lemonheads and Guided By Voices as his influences, and while I personally think the former have been overrated for too long, the latter definitely make sense, although I rather feel a kinship to a better produced Daniel Johnston. Especially the more rocking tunes remind me of the collaborations between Daniel Johnston and Jad Fair. I know that Jacob Faurholt can hardly be labelled an outsider artist, but his emotions feel true enough to make him one of those rare artists who channel their vulnerability through very intimate indie rock music that will leave an impression long after the artist has recorded the music.
