Linnea Olsson announces debut CD and tour dates with Ane Brun

Linnea Olsson | Ah! | CD

Linnea Olsson | Ah! | CD

GTIN(UPC/EAN/ISBN): 7320470139387
Label: Götterfunk
Street Date: 1/21/2014

SRP: 16.99

There are all sorts of reasons why people become musicians, with some simply fated to pursue the path. It’s not how they start out, however, rather than how they proceed that matters. LINNEA OLSSON is no exception, and this fact is reflected in the manner in which her debut solo album, AH!, unfolds. Stroking out low, mournful notes on her cello, layering them delicately upon one another before teasing out ‘Ocean’s’ melody on its higher strings, she sets a tone that predicts an album which might sit comfortably alongside the burgeoning post-classical / neo-classical movement. But to make such an assumption would be entirely wrong: LINNEA OLSSON rarely treads where one might expect.

Tour dates:
S O N G S & R A R I T I E S
February 11 Vienna, VA Jammin Java
February 12 New York, NY Highline Ballroom
February 13 Montreal, QC L’Astral
February 14 Toronto, ON Rivoli

February 17 Vancouver, BC Electric Owl
February 18 Seattle, WA Crocodile Lounge

Faithfully yours,
The Aristocrats

Ane Brun Announces SONGS 2003-2013

32 song collection also contains rare and previously unreleased material…

Ane Brun | Songs 2003 – 2013 | 2xCD

The album Ane Brun – Songs: 2003 –2013 is a 2 x CD compilation album (31 songs), The track listing is in chronological order and includes songs from all of her eight albums. Its a standard jewel case CD

SONGS 2003-2013 overflows with some of Brun’s finest recordings, drawing upon work from each of her albums and therefore allowing for both studio and live versions of some of her most popular songs. It also contains a handful of rare tracks, including a gorgeous take on Arcade Fire’s ‘Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels)’.
In addition, new material is present, amongst it a re-recording of ‘This Voice’ that reflects its live arrangement, and ‘Feeling Good’, a cover of the Newley/Bricusse classic made most famous by Nina Simone – and also often sung by Brun’s mother, a jazz singer and pianist in her own right – which is here recast as an acoustic sigh of pastoral optimism. An orchestral interpretation of ‘Don’t’ Give Up’ (taken from Peter Gabriel’s New Blood album) is also included, Brun taking the previously untouchable Kate Bush role and making it her own.

SONGS 2003-2013 charts Brun’s advance from the bewitching, frail acoustic compositions that made her name to the complex drama of her last album, It All Starts With One, via increasingly adventurous arrangements and an undeniably restless ambition to explore new musical opportunities. A decade in the making, it confirms ANE BRUN as an uncompromising and vital musical voice.

Brun says,

I kind of told myself early on to continue doing this as long as it gave me pleasure and it still does, more than ever. I’m still fingerpicking in front of my favourite TV series or with my morning coffee, just like I did ten to fifteen years ago. And it still fascinates me, just like it did when I wrote one of my very first songs, ‘Wooden Body’, sometime around the year 2000…
