During the winter of 2015, Rhode Island songwriter Jacob Haller kept his spirits up by sharing some old and new home recordings with his friends. Once the weather calmed down a bit, he and 75orLess Records sorted through the recordings, picked out five or their favorites, and put them together to form ‘Cabin Fever’. Despite the brevity of the album, there’s a lot of variety here, from the disco beats of ‘My Little Lobster’, to the accordion-and-drum-machine blues cover of the They Might Be Giants song ‘I’m Sick (of This American Life)’, to the Lesley Gore acoustic tribute ‘Maybe I Know’, to the folksy singalong of ‘I Wish That I Was Vegan’, to the spoken word insanity of ‘Swat the Bees’.
Praise for Jacob Haller
“Providence musician Jacob Haller is as unique as his lyrics are clever.”
– Annie Messier, Providence Daily Dose, 10 May 2012
“Jacob Haller does music as though he were the secret love-child of Warren Zevon and Burl Ives.”
– Jeffrey Channing Wells, Skin Horse co-author
