Nina Romic

Today, music from Yugoslavia or whatever was left from it. No special reason other than some interesting new tunes from over there and recent obituaries. From Macedonia, we check out 21 Vek, their new single. Rebel Star operates in Serbia and Hungary and now collaborates with Zagreb’s Zvonka Obajdin. Also in Zagreb, Croatia, Nina Romi? is back with the new single. Koikoi is a new name for us, a four piece from Belgrade Serbia. Then we zig zag back to Zagreb and check out Confidential & The Secret Four. Then we end up all the way North in Slovenia and introduce Matthias von Stumberger und seine Jugend. We pay tributes to fallen Yugo rock representatives, Marina Tucakovi? who was a lyricist for many popular songs, singer songwriter and TV presenter Minja Subota. Also musicians Sanja Ili? and Zafir Hažimanov.

I recently came across a band from Barcelona, Spain, by the name of Belgrado, with a Polish singer that takes up the visual identity of Yugoslavian Zenitism movement and sounds like they are from Rijeka, cca 1983. Then, we also check out a Welsh band that named themselves after my old hometown, Vukovar. Back in that old part of the world, we also get new music from Nina Romić and Punčke.

Irena ŽilićToday’s spotlight is on the neo-acoustic music scene in former Yugoslavia. There was a huge folk movement also known over there as akusticari in the early to mid seventies. It seems as that scene is being revived. We already presented Belgrade’s On Tour some time ago, and today we have two more new names. Irena Žilić is a young singer songwriter from Zagreb with her modern and fresh take on western folk music. Nina Romić, also from Zagreb, is on the other hand more rooted in the local folklore. In this episode, she covers a song written originally by Satan Panonski – a hard blood shock punk from the eighties who was both influential and controversial at the same time. Nina’s cover is a part of a larger tribute called Oči u magli. We also have a new album by our old friends from Rijeka My Buddy Moose. Their style is more on the roots rock side. Their new album Shine Shine Shine is produced by Chris Eckman from The Walkabouts, who also lives in that neck of the woods these days – Ljubljana. The Walkabouts have a live album called Berlin and we check that out as well in this show. Elsewhere form Europe, Amsterdam, we have an instrumental outfit called Bevel Emboss who create a wonderful tapestry of guitar sounds on their new album called Celluloid. Back to America – we have Arbouretum from Baltimore for the first time and super-group Sweet Apple have a new single out there which announces their album due this Spring around the Record Store Day. Mark Lanegan is a guest vocalist!

Uncle Tupelo – Gun;
Arbouretum – The Promise;
Arbouretum – Wicked Messenger;

Jack Fords – Shake Some Action (Live in CLE);
