news round-up: May 2013

Samo slusam

-> 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
