VINYL RECORD, REEL PROBLEMS: A BAG OF PROBLEM
VAT and Shipping incl.
Just before the spring of 2018 had officially begun, four lads at the Mesnička Cultural Centre played a very problematic set which lacked a ground base.
A BAG OF PROBLEMS
They are called Reel Problems or Tračni problemi in Croatian. Reel Problems are: Krunoslav Levačić, Mario Bočić, Luka Žužić and Ivar Roban Križić. They actually aren’t problematic at all.
Except for when they play. Or hang out. Or sleep. Because everything they do, they do with full intensity and they leave a strong impression on everyone who is in their company or in the audience, probably the people in their dreams too. The widest possible spectrum of emotions is intertwined in their performances of their own compositions or covers, leaving every listener in contemplation for weeks after a concert.
The double LP was recorded in one take without additional recording. We are capturing the moment. With all its genius and flaws.
