    For my rock stuff:

    It all intertwine somewhat though.

    (Though Sun O))), Earth and Low are not electronic bands, their music is still an inspiration for the electronic, especially drone, ambient and noise oriented, music I make)


    Releases with various projects I have been involved with:

    Old projects I was a part of:

    Menfolk (hardcore and noise rock influenced math rock):

    Menfolk - Double Date (Split single with The Unit)

    Menfolk - Are we enemies (Split EP with Barra Head)

    (Menfolk - Colossus (Album, where I helped compose a few tracks, but didn't record anything))

    Janosch (lo-fi indie pop):

    Janosch - Inhere Outhere (EP)

    Janosch - Holesong (Featuring on the compilation Danelectro)

    You won't find much of this on YouTube, but if you use Spotify or similar online digital music services, or do a search for Menfolk on Bandcamp, you'll find it.

    In Menfolk I played one of the two basses, as well as contributed to the compositions and some of the lyrics.

    In Janosch I did bass, lead guitar, backing vocals, contributed to the compositions as well as some additional lyrics.

    And my latest projects- All solo projects consisting of home recordings:

    Electro Jar (psychedelic downtempo electronic music, originally a duo with Jackie Rasmusen as the other member)

    Jacob Læby (drone/ambient/noise)

    Flystyrt (experimental music, primarily utilizing electronic elements, with recited own, predominantly Danish, poems )

    ...and for such a long time
    (alternative and psych folk)

    Which can be found, listened to and downloaded for free on Bandcamp. Further more most of my drone/ambient/noise stuff, in my own name, Jacob Læby, can be found on Spotify and similar online digital music services.

    (For various stuff composed and recorded by me check out my SoundCloud page: Jacob Læby's profile - Listen to music)
