Erik Enocksson "Farväl Falkenberg" LP
Farväl Falkenberg is an album by Erik Enocksson and a soundtrack to the movie of the same name. It is 10 years old this year and in celebration of that Posh Isolation is rereleasing it in a remastered version with new artwork, giving it its first widespread LP release to date.
When Farväl Falkenberg was originally released, the record label responsible, Kning Disk, wrote in their press release “— having not only created a lush record full of thick, backcountry piano and raw, acoustic guitar waltzes, Enocksson has more importantly produced an album that effortlessly translates the feeling of isolation (both geographically and emotionally) in an intensely personal way you don’t often come across.”
With such a statement it seems only natural that now 10 years later it should find a new home via Posh Isolation.
“It is hard to overstate the importance Erik Enocksson’s work in relation to the discography of Posh Isolation. Years before we met, his release “Apan” completely changed how I thought of music. Something similar happened when i later heard Farväl Falkenberg for the first time. I was in a car going from Prague to Berlin sitting on the backseat, the person next to me had tears down her cheeks in the middle of the first song, by the end of the record the whole car was silent and remained so for the rest of the drive. It is rare to witness music with such effect and it is not often that a record could have that effect still, ten years after its initial release. I think Farväl Falkenberg can.
The work of Erik Enocksson has been an inspiration since the first time i heard it and i imagine it always will be. It is in honour to be able to present this work again now on its 10th year. -Loke Rahbek
Asking Enocksson about the record and what to say of it he said;
“When I turned twelve my dad took me out back to fire a shotgun for the first time”
