Ici D'ailleurs present a reissue of Matt Elliott's Howling Songs, originally released in 2008. Howling Songs is the magnificent third and last part to the Songs trilogy. Ici D'ailleurs are back to this Slavonic tune, without any definite frontier, whose only and constant heritage finds its roots in European music. This is a very haunted and personal piece of music which is the testimony of a unique talent where moving melodies follow other moving melodies balancing between ballad songs and folk music, madness and reason, revolt and despair. Howling Songs sympathizes with the surrounding world, it is a definitive observation in which one can feel, throughout the songs, an outraged sensitivity which is the signature of the artist. It is all the more sensitive that Matt's voice is sometimes present without any chorus in the background, bringing to the whole both confidence and unquestionable heat. Howling Songs is, without a doubt, the most introspective album by Matt Elliott and the one which best carries his musical personality.
