    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)

    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)

    Fjernsind (drone/ambient/noise, previously sharing my own name Jacob Læby)

    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.
