"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: this 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. Moonlight Farm is comprised of ten songs, somehow both comforting and unsettling, concerned with the classic subjects: the garbage, the flowers, one's 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."
