->“The Marshmallow Notebooks” album was finally released on June 25, 2013; feel free to download it here
->the album was mastered by Andy Jackson, twice Grammy nominated engineer, mostly known as Pink Floyd’s engineer for thirty years, which is quite funny because Pink Floyd are Pink Floyd and Matija recorded most of his Marshmallow albums using headphones as a microphone
->limited-edition LP will be out after the summer; if you’d like to reserve your copy, please send an e-mail to mhabijanec (at) hotmail.com
->the gig at the last Žur of the season in Prostor Do went great – the setlist is here and Gogo’s gig review can be found over at RuralnaGorila; it’s in Croatian of course
->the first single off the new album, “Advice”, is currently #6 over at Muzika je Zvonko Radost; feel free to vote, but only if you like the song
->the upcoming second single, “Summer“, can also be found on a “Bistro na rubu šume vol. 2” compilation released on July 1, 2013

-> 90% of “The Marshmallow Notebooks” record is mixed, so nine out of ten songs
-> May was all about mixing the record with an old pal Hrvoje Nikšić in his Kramasonik studio; Nikšo also played some Hammond organ (“I’ll OK It”, “Brand New”) and mellotron (“Every Little Thing”, “Crawl into the Warmth”) on a few tracks and even sang some backing vocals on “Brand New” and there are other guests on the album – Vlado Brljak (Marshmallows drummer from 2003 to 2005) played drums on as many as seven tracks, Vatroslav Miloš (Marshmallows drummer since 2005) and Marin Juranić, both current members of The Marshmallow Notebooks band, sang some backing vocals on a couple of tracks (“Advice, “The Last Tourist in Town (acoustic)”) and Marin also played some acoustic guitar on “Advice”, Oliver Kovač (Marshmallows bass player since 2002) played bass on “Advice”, Matko Botić played mandolin on “Summer” and Nina Bertović played the accordion on “Well”
-> mastering should be done by mid-June, so let’s say the release date is June 15
-> that’s also when The Marshmallows Notebooks (full band) are playing at Žur in Spunk
