With a second album release on the Homerecords label, Tom Theuns (Aurelia, Ambrozijn,…) enters into dialogue with American troubadour Paul Russell from Boulder, Colorado. Over the summer, Tom and Paul isolated themselves in a woodland cabin where they worked out a bunch of songs based on their mutual passion for ragtime, country blues and European folk.

Aranis, year 2014: a Belgian band that brings something definitely off the beaten tracks! The second installment in their "Made in Belgium" series (aka MIB 2) is now on the road...and it's more captivating than a thriller!
Griff Trio could have played those traditional melodies in their most rough form, like a bunch of photocopies, but they preferred to confront them to their imagination and artistic desires...
So no nostalgia in this record, but the breath of 21st century troubadours.
