But be sure to tune in Monday the 19th when there'll be an interview with us sharing some behind the scenes secrets and explaining Pičke! Slo2 is also broadcasted live via internet so anyone with a connection can see the show live.

You should also tune in to Val 202 tomorrow (the 14th) to hear us talk about the album, the making of, the plans all sorts of things really... you can also listen to it live provided you have some internets or owning a radio in Slovenia. More info about it HERE.

D.C. so pičke got its second review! This one is in Croatian but I'm sure many of you will understand it just fine. Click these yellow letters right here to read it for yourself. Despite the many Nirvana references (we gonna take it as a compliment though we were never really trying to do grunge) it is a very positive and not just quickly – first listen – put together review. It gives us 9 out of 10 =)

And yeah it is true we got together with our friend Ven Jemeršič (he is also our measuring unit for studio recording) this Sunday. What we did was a very very tasty new video indeed. No spoilers for now but this picture:

When it’s us it’s an abortion but when it’s a chicken it’s an omelette!?!

STG news develop to a time and a place. We will be playing 22nd March in Orto bar. Barely modern and ŠKM banda will also be playing that night. We have 30 minutes to impress the judges so do you guys have any ideas what songs we should play?

We did two interviews on radio Študent and one of them got archived so you can listen to it by clicking here. Our part of it starts at 18 minutes.

Dandelion children so pičke also got it’s first review. It was done by Božidar Kolar and this is what he had to say:

Zanimivo je kako je moderni rock, ki je zrasel na prvinah alternativnih izvajalcev iz druge polovice osemdesetih in začetka devetdesetih let, ter kulminiral v poznanem grungeovskem zvokovju, v minulem desetletju izgubil privlačnost, ki jo je s trdimi kitarskimi riffi in počenim vokalom tako dolgo imel v lasti. Razlog za to nedvomno leži v dejstvu, da so različni izvajalci predolgo kopirali uveljavljene vzorce in dodobra prežvečili vse možnosti, ki jih je ozek okus dopuščal. Predvsem v letu 2011 smo lahko slišali očitke, da so edine dobre rockovske stvaritve bili na plan sposobni spraviti le stari mački slovenske alter-rock scene – Demolition Group in Res Nullius, v mednarodnih vodah pa je leto prej to letelo na Nicka Cavea z Grinderman in Jacka Whitea z The Dead Weather.

Dandelion Children, ki se s trdnim podtaljem a neobremenjeno domišljijo kot ustvarjalci glasbe kalijo že vrsto let, so v samem začetku letošnjega leta na slovensko glasbeno sceno vrgli plošček, ki izziva prej navedene trditve. Album z naslovom „Dandelion Children so pičke“ vsebuje namreč trde in distorzirane zvoke, ki se tolikokrat povezujejo z mediokriteto, a jih na svež ter zabaven način strne v kvalitetne in raznovrstne izdelke. Komadi na Pičkah sicer kljub pričakovani žanrski razgibanosti občutno bolj tvorijo albumsko celoto kot pri prejšnjih izdelkih ljubljanskega tria, zaradi česar je album fluiden in zanimiv.

V enajstih komadih se pokaže bandov napredek, predvsem na veliko bolj razgibanem in opaznem basu, ki na čase spominja na stil Lesa Claypoola, v glasbi pa je mogoče slišati tudi vplive legend kot so denimo The Pixies ali System of a Down. Skozi nekatere komade se vleče tudi subtilna nota skaja, ki pa je tako krepko prežeta z Dandelionovskim karakterjem, da skoraj ni opazna. Najbrž je glavna lastnost Pičk ravno ta prepoznaven karakter – sinteza raznovrstnih žanrov z dolgoletnim ustvarjanjem v isti, domači postavi, ki je rodila zvočno obliko s prepoznavnimi karakteristikami.

Dandelion Children so pičke je sicer prvi album ljubljanskega tria, ki je natisnjen tudi v fizični obliki. CD, ki ga odlikuje zanimiv dizajn razkriva kako je do albuma sploh prišlo in kdo je kriv za njegov nenavaden naslov. Hkrati pa nam vrsta zahval na notranji strani škatle in relativna preprostost embalaže (plošček nima standardnega bookleta, le obojestransko natisnjen cover), da občutek, da skupina resnično uživa ob svojem delu in, da je izjemno hvaležna za omogočeno snemanje. Produkcija plate je v primerjavi z bendovimi prejšnjimi izdelki na visoki ravni in nasploh omogoča visoko poslušljivost. Potrpežljive poslušalce pa čaka tudi nagrada. Na koncu se skriva skrit jam, ki je sicer pričakovano slabše kvalitete a povzame bendovo energijo, ki jo drugače emanirajo na odru.

Don’t show up to your first date with blood on your shirt looking like you just strangled a homeless person in a dark alley with a piano wire and you’ll be fine!!!

Dandelion Children so pičke

Our friend Damjan got some microphones for recording drums and needed help testing them. Hoping to get a demo out of it, we helped him out. We then tricked him and ended up with an album =D So many thanks to Damjan Lebeničnik for spending countless hours helping us record, mix and produce the record... also for doing some sexy backing vocals and noise. Also thanks to Neža, guy, Maja & Tea for helping us hate on Maki (thank you Maki for being this inspirationally lame). also thanks to Maja Tisel for the photo of Damjan =D Hugs and thumbs up to Anej Kočevar a.k.a. Kočo for the mastering and special thanks to Marina Loop for the ever so wonderful artwork and cover design. Naturally we thank the anonymous hater for the album title and the cover background...we owe you (batine). And also thanks to Mark who tried to redeem our name thus ruining our cover, so thank you Jure P. for the Photoshop work =P And big thanks to you for listening to our little creation. It was a weird year for us and we hope our music did not disappoint =)

We also got in the finals in the whole STG thing. It’s a big honor for us to be chosen as one of the best 15 artists in the country. More on this as it goes along but for now a sexy little gig is a definite!

Songs are just exercises of solitude!!!
