The debut album 'Various Thoughts and Places' from 't Geruis (released via Lost Tribe Sound).

'Various Thoughts and Places' is an exercise in finding the balance between beauty and what is broken, or generally what might be considered so. This "friction", so to speak, is a tension that has always held great inspirational value. Call it melancholy, call it nostalgia. Finding that balance is the moment where the creation takes over the process and all that's left to do is follow along.

Through imperfection it reaches perfection. 

'Various Thoughts and Places' is an exercise in evoking images, moods and memories. Perhaps they are places we have actually been, feeling we have actually felt, or visions we have truly laid eyes upon. Or perhaps, as the mind often does, maybe they are simply an illusion... a false recollection, an embellishment of the past. Existing in that zone between what is real and what feels real.

This album is an ode to dreams and to being. An ode to moments and places, to people and you.

La vie quoi. 


released May 21, 2021

Originally released on Lost Tribe Sound. See Catalog:

NEW AND NOTABLE - "An exercise in finding the balance between the beauty and the broken, the latest from ’t Geruis wanders gentle soundscapes. - BANDCAMP

BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR: 2021 Readers Poll - "The execution is absolutely transcendent. Anyone looking for a slow-burning and immersive phantasmagoria of hissing loops and tenderly bittersweet melodies can basically begin and end their search here, as it is damn near impossible to imagine anyone surpassing this modest masterpiece once it hits its stride." (Anthony D'Amico) BRAINWASHED

2021 FAVORITES - (Kevin Press) THE MODERNS

BEST OF 2021 - "Occasionally music comes into your orbit that just puts you on your ass. Music that you sink right into and you lose yourself inside. It’s a rare and beautiful feeling, and one that Belgium based artist ‘t Geruis seemingly effortlessly provides via with his strange, atmospheric, at times highly repetitive pieces from his debut album Various Thoughts And Places. His music seems to tug at your very soul, with his sounds feeling aged, archaic, existing from another century – something between a woozy degraded field recording and murky sound design." - (Bob Baker Fish) CYCLIC DEFROST

2021'S BEST NEW ACTS: Ambient & Modern Classical - SON OF MARKETING

"Beauty can be seen in decay, and there’s no doubt that these rusting melodies are beautiful, the music putting on that special dress once again, looking in the mirror at its sublime fabric of notes – slightly worn and frayed after all these years, true, but still able to contain the essence of its memories and moments." - (James Catchpole) FLUID RADIO

"The presence of this album is unreal. Faint piano loops; rusted and throaty reeds, urgent white noise served up a dozen different ways. These are incredibly visual compositions, and I promise, you've never seen anything like it." - (Fred Nolan) CONCERNED CITIZEN

"These are sepia slides, veiled by a slightly dusty patina, which frames a combination of piano loops and grainy analog debris, from which a sense of endemic nostalgia emanates." - (translated from Italian) MUSIC WON'T SAVE YOU

"Une démarche expérimentale basée sur l’improvisation qui donne ici un disque très réussi qui peut évoquer une nature étrange ou une campagne hostile. Une belle expérience d’immersion sonore." - POSSIBLE MUSICS

"This album is a grower that reveals the complex content of the songs with their moods after a few deep listens." - (translated from Dutch) (Patsker Omaer Beguin) LUMINOUS DASH

"Een verstilde melancholie doordringt ‘Various Thoughts And Places’, alsof de muziek elk moment kan verdwijnen." - (svw) GONZO

"Wonderfully isolationist, melancholic and above all reflective splendor." - (Jan Willem Broek) DE SUBJECTIVISTEN
