news round-up: September & October 2013

summer frame

->”The Marshmallow Notebooks” album (free download here) still refuses to be forgotten – in fact, Vedran Harča recently gave it 5 out of 5 stars in the Croatian edition of Rolling Stone and called it a “bedroom masterpiece
->the extra-limited vinyl edition (200 copies) of the album will be out in February; if you want one, please get in touch via e-mail because there are currently a few thousand comments too many on this website waiting to be looked at and moved to trash as 99.9% of it is spam
->both the September show in Zagreb and the October show in Zabok went great; Matija had some dear guests joining him on stage on both occasions – Vlado Brljak (drums), Oliver Kovač (bass) and Matko Botić (mandolin) joined him in Močvara and Marin Juranić (acoustic guitar) joined him in Regenerator; the set-lists and links to youtube videos are here and you can read the Močvara gig reviews over at Ravno Do Dna and Ruralna Gorila
->there will be some shows in November and December as well; more dates and details will appear here shortly, but two dates have already been confirmed – December 11 in Močvara with The Pharmacy (Seattle) and December 14 in Matija’s hometown Krapina with VVhile (Beograd)
->the second single off the album, “Summer“, recieved plenty of airplay, mostly thanx to great shows and stations like Kozmic Blues (Radio Kikinda), Pop Depression (Studio B, Beograd), Supersonična Emisija (Radio Student, Zagreb), Ravno Do Sna (Radio Student, Zagreb), Trezor (HR2, Zagreb), Kanal 103 (Skopje)…
->you can still vote for “Summer” over at Muzika Je Zvonko Radost
->the “Summer” video was beautifully edited by Josip Visković who is rumoured to be in charge for the forthcoming “I’ll ok it” video as well
->everyone who contributed their video clips for the “Summer” video received an exclusive “Summer EP” (mp3) featuring demo, live and home recordings, three of which are previously unreleased songs
->Matija was interviewed by Ladislav Tomičić for the Croatian daily newspaper Novi List and by Zvonimir Varga for his blog
->good (or irrelevant) news for those who only listen to music on YouTube: you can now listen to the whole album on YouTube
