The lo-fi sadcore alt folk of Trainwreck Department sprinkles hopeful sounds in the somber on "Sea Plus Bees"

Trainwreck Department. I like this name for a band or musical project and in this case it is the home recording project of prolific Danish songwriter Jacob Faurholt who also releases albums under the moniker Crystal Shipss. The track Sea Plus Bees has an alt folk vibe with psyche tones and an almost child like whimsy but it feels like the aesthetic might be pollyanna as irony, as commentary. Whatever is the case the lo-fi sadcore approach is appealing. I am going to keep my ears and eyes open for more from Jacob.
