Changing of the Seasons entered the Scandinavian charts at #1

Press fell hard for Ane here last time around...

Rolling Stone:
“...elegantly strange songs mix surreal whimsy with Scandinavian darkness”

“...most compelling of all is her voice--- a mix of Bjork’s unpredictability and Joni Mitchells directness...”

“...full of evocative melodies, heartfelt lyrics and razor sharp guitar picking”

“A work of haunting minimalism”

NY Times:
“surreal folksiness”

“...melancholy splendor that will keep you crawling back”

“Brun aims for the best of subtle, spacious songs that work best at 2am...”

Slant: #1 record of 2006
“refreshing and pure, a throwback to traditional folks music at the same time keeping one foot firmly planed in the no longer-neo, neo-folk movement”

Time Out Chicago:
“it refreshing how much variety Brun brings to her game”

Time Out New York:
“ perfect that it evokes awed pleasure rather than gloom”

American Songwriter:
“the arrival of an artist who has found her creative voice....a singer songwriter whole talents transcends musical movements and genre designations”

“...sultry torch singer, sixties folks master and witty entertainer...”

“Brun eschews the typical singer-songwriter clichés by way of creating vintage-sounding acoustic melodies that deal with despair without sounding desperate”

Guitar World Acoustic:
“Brun sings melancholy ballads to the fluid singer picked accompaniment of her acoustic guitar”
