My Buddy Moose with Calexico in Rijeka

Happy and proud to announce that we will be opening for Calexico on August 13th on their show in Rijeka, Croatia.



During the years we have been lucky to play and work or open for great artists and performers like Howe Gelb, Chris Eckman, M.Ward, Mark Olson, The Saints, Chuck Prophet...

The fact that Calexico, one of our musical heroes, are coming to our hometown is fantastic but being able to share the stage with them is beyond words.

A brilliant album, filled with great songs: Music reviews on My Buddy Moose "IV"




Even before it was officially released our new album has gained attention and praise by music critics. The final confirmation came at the end of 2017 when numerous newspapers, radio shows and web sites began announcing their "best of the year" lists.

We are happy, proud and honored that our album "IV" was on most of them as one of the best albums not only in Croatia but also one of the best records in surrounding region.



The album was recorded by Matej Zec in GIS Studio in Kastav, mixed by Matthew Emerson Brown, mastered by Levi Seitz from Black Belt Studios in Seattle and produced by My Buddy Moose with Matej Zec and Matthew Emerson Brown.

The latest single is After The Feeling Is Gone 





Here are some excerpts from music reviews

"A brilliant record and one of those rare bloody great albums without a weak moment that show the band in full creative strength endlessly enjoying their work" Željko Ljubobratović, Trusty.hr

My Buddy Moose "IV": Briljantan uradak pun sjajnih pjesama, jedan od najboljih albuma godine


Čak i prije službenog izlaska, naša draga "četvorka" pokupila je nekoliko sjajnih recenzija, a prava poplava odličnih kritika uslijedila je prije ljeta, kada je album konačno ugledao svjetlo dana.

U međuvremenu se pojavilo i raskošno vinilno izdanje koje je zbog svog fantastičnog vizualnog rješenja Envera Krivca i Dobriše Radovanovića cijelu priču podiglo za još koju stepenicu više.

 U nastavku vam donosimo pregled dijela recenzija albuma "IV".

ŠTO KAŽE KRITIKA:


Novi album My Buddy Moosea "IV", upravo objavljen i na vinilu, pun je sjajnih pjesama koje između napucane melidioznosti, americane, popa šezdesetih, psihodelije, balada i filigranske majstorske svirke pokazuju raskoš jednog od ponajboljih domaćih rock-bendova”, Hrvoje Horvat, Večernji list


Četvrti album My Buddy Moose briljantan je uradak i jedan od onih rijetkh prokleto dobrih albuma bez slabog trenutka na kojima je vidljivo da je bend u naponu kreativne snage i da beskrajno uživa u onome što radi, a kad se stvari tako poklope rezultat je uvijeki ovako uvjerljivŽeljko Ljubobratović, Trusty.hr
 

"Ovom albumu ne može se jednostavno ništa zamjeriti ni predbaciti. Ostaje samo pitanje tko će ih prvi izvan Hrvatske otkriti i zaključak da je u pitanju jedan od najboljih europskih americana bendova." Dubravko Jagatić, Nacional

''Jasno je kako je riječ o jednom od najboljih domaćih albuma u dosadašnjem segmentu godine, a među njima će svakako ostati i na njenom kraju'' - Ivan Laić, Ravno Do Dna

"...naprosto sjajan album savršeno usviranog i nadahnutog benda" - Zlatko Gall, Slobodna Dalmacija

''Na kojem god jeziku pjevali, taj bend je među najboljima u nas'' - Aleksandar Dragaš, Jutarnji list

“My Buddy Moose su ponovno uspjeli u svojem naumu i pružili deset novih pjesama koje zajedno čine vrlo dojmljivu cjelinu koja će sigurno zaluditi kritiku, a ja se nadam i publiku. Siniša Miklaužić, muzika.hr

Riječki sobovi snimili su svoj možda ponajbolji album koji u svim segmentima predstavlja korak naprijed u odnosu na prethodna izdanja, album bez ijedne loše pjesme ili fillera koji se naslanja na zvuk benda s prethodnih izdanja, ali pokazuje da su spremni i za iskorake još dalje i još više., Rockomotiva


My Buddy Moose su prošli dugi put, od simpatičnih ‘kauboja’ zaluđenih americanom do ove briljantne ploče koja im otvara druga vrata prema novoj publici, Vlado Simcich Vava, Rif magazin .
