Album Notes
"The Mortal Moon"

A collection of original songs by Mariénne Kreitlow displays a deep sense of individual emotion and environmental concern, while spinning a web of strong instrumentation, production and overall sonic quality. The songs cover a wide range of musical styles from reggae/ska, jazz, afro/cuban, to more classically based keyboard oriented ballads, all the while maintaining a strong folk foundation. Mariénne's lyrics are dense and personal at times, though conveying universal messages that virtually anyone can relate to. All in all the CD has an "in your face" quality that makes it very easy to listen to. -Josef Kalna, Songnet

"Joyfully sensuous" - Dirty Linen Magazine

"Beguiling songs"- City Pages, Minneapolis, MN

"A songwriter of the first order: incisive, sensual and spiritual. Not to be missed." - Victory Review, Washington, USA

Clean, transparent recording...profundity in apparent simplicity
Here is recording that embodies clean, transparent production on every song, with crystal-clear diction on the singer’s part.  Instrumental arrangements could be called minimalist; their intensity is not overt, but a quiet tension is pervasive.  Lyrics tend to be quietly poignant.  Profundity in apparent simplicity is surely one of Marienne’s talents.  There are plenty of striking lines, e.g.: “let’s do our battle in the kindest ways” and “I’m in love with the moment ‘til the moment comes again.”

“Desert Song” – subtle woodwind whispers ensure just the right arrangement.

“Sonnet” – a short gem, with a tune as mysterious as Shakespeare’s words.

“Romeo Is Gone” – jazzy piano contrasts with a wistful yet restless sense of loss.

“LA Nightmare” – uneasy dream-lyrics against rattling drums, smooth guitar, ghostly chorus.

“Song for the Gwich’in” – unabashedly straightforward environmentalist preaching; a starkly powerful plea against Arctic drilling.

“There Is a Bird” – subtle keyboard stylings give way to a lovely acoustic ballad.
