…quelque chose, dans les chansons de Matija Habijanec, me remue les entrailles. Comme si ce mec, dont je ne sais quasiment rien, parlait à ma place. Au final, la musique, ou l’écriture en général, ça touche juste quand les mecs réussissent à dire ce que tu ressens, mais en mieux… (Cédric Queniart, J’ai tout lu, tout vu, tout bu…)

…some days, in a rock landscape decimated by commercial warfare and cybernetic hubris, it feels like the music really has died. Like an ‘American Pie’ nightmare, temporarily staved off by Don McLean and Eugene Levy, has returned in surreal fashion to destroy popular music.  And then I imagine myself a tourist, wandering down a street on a late summer evening in Zagreb, coming across a spontaneous performance by The Marshmallow Notebooks, crawling into the warmth.  I have no money for the performers.  Matija sings to me, “Put it on my tab.”… (Colin J Campbell, Toronto, Summer 2016)
