Album Notes
Garlic & Other Forces of Nature (adventurous-folk genre) is well suited for mirth-seeking lovers of garlic with adventurous taste buds.

Climb on board the magical mystery farm tour. Take time to stroll through the fields or dream as you cruise country roads. You’ll meet a lovelorn vampire, a lady who has mastered the high art of insect cuisine, a cross-dressing cowboy, a Vietnamese pot-bellied pig on steroids, a Victorian maiden with a garlic love potion, & more. Music ranges from ethereal to rollicking - like bits of The Roaches, Trout Fishing In America, Bob Wills, & The Mediaeval Babes.

Mariénne covers self-penned tunes with distinctive vocals, keys, guitar, flute & percussion. Jeff “The Buff” Stocki adds bass, drums, & guitar, with Ellie Fregni on violin. Mixed & mastered by Jerry Ford. The enhanced CD features the video “I Like Garlic” - filmed onsite at Living Song Farms in Minnesota by Rodger Marion. Ecologically responsible packaging.

Fun and Inventive!
Mariénne’s latest offering Garlic & Other Forces Of Nature presents a clever, whimsical side to this multifaceted artist. Sharp, witty writing and magical arrangements make this album a pure delight. Tracks like “Be Like a Bird” bring to mind the crafty brilliance of The Beatles’ The White Album while “Cowboy From Texas” would be a perfect fit for Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. “Scorn Not Garlic” grabs you by the hand and whisks you away to an earlier time, a period filled with damsels, castles, minstrels and enchantment. Kreitlow even manages to work her trademark sensuality into the mix. Just try listening to “I Like Garlic” without feeling a little weak in the knees as she coyly lists the many reasons why garlic pleases her so very much. This is Mariénne’s Pet Sounds, it is fun, inventive, well-crafted and exquisitely performed.

an endearing musical journey through the spirit of the ofttimes neglected gārlēa
I found myself wearing a new smile with each song. Take Time's "froggy song" was a hit with my children and the "virtual tour" of the Kreitlow Farm, included in video form on the album, opened a beautiful window into the life of this amazingly "in touch" singer songwriter.

Garlic is fun!
I love Marienne\'s music and I long awaited this album since I noticed its announcement on her web site about a year ago. \"Garlic & Other Forces of Nature\" is fun without making any excuses for it! And mine, ordered as soon as I heard of the release, even came with Minnesota grown garlic from Living Song Farm. What more could I want.
