Album: JACOBSON AND THE SPACE WIZARDS II
Released: 1 January 2023
The album was recorded in Jacobson’s apartment, where he wrote and performed
all the songs in his home studio. “This was my process for reconnecting with myself,”
he says, noting themes that focus on loss, heartache and self-healing, moving on, attempting to reconnect, letting go, and depression.
Turn Up The Volume: The fervor of John Mellencamp, Springsteen-esque Americana
ardor, and the affection of the late Tom Petty. I know, big names, but that is what my ears, and my music encyclopaedia tell me. This is first-rate traditional songwriting that makes you feel moody and moony at the same time. The album was released/shared, yesterday on New Year’s Day and works like a calming companion, bringing you back to the real world after the busy festive – let’s all get happy for two weeks – Holidays.
