Once Upon A Time ’85

Bilo jednom…

I had “Once Upon A Time” (Jugoton edition) in my first LP collection. It’s been neglected (with reasons) for too long. Jimmy Iovine almost turned them into stadium sized American bar band which broke too many sophisticated hearts. This album does me good thou. Goodbye art cinema, hello football!

(The) Lesser Men ‎– References, Reflections: Revelations (2019)

thelessermen

On their third album, in the face of yet more line-up interferences, Zagreb’s auto-bio-core quartet sets out for a pilgrimage of sorts, fathoming out the heart and soul of their music through inspection of references and reflections. Come along, immerse your ears in their revelations! (Geenger Records)

Lottery Score pt. 2

I saw (The) Lesser Men playing short set before The Membranes / Mark Lanegan Band last November. Their music (in which keyboard player is the lead) filled the empty venue and kicked my ass (almost like Simple Minds; which isn’t correct reference, by the way). Yet it made me jump on my feet and get closer to the stage. The sparkle in the night. Southeast at Easter ’18. That sort of revelatory stuff.

ESC Life – Born To Be Mild (2018)

esc life

ESC Life is a quartet from Zagreb, Croatia, fixated on loud guitars, solos, fast rhythms and pop songs. Heavily influenced by power-pop and punk rock giants like Descendents, Nova Mob, The Hold Steady or Superchunk, they play with cliches of popular music of the 20th and 21st century, but never ironically. “Born To Be Mild” is filled with witty, fast and catchy indie rock tunes about life after 30, love and adulthood!
