For lovers of genre-bending musical escapade
Marko Brdnik, Uroš Rakovec and Gašper Peršl have built promising careers as soloists, chamber and studio musicians. They play (also together) in various Slovenian and international award-winning avant-rock, jazz, etno-jazz, etc. bands. They write music (also together) for different theatre performances, dance shows and films.
As an accordion and guitar duo Brdnik and Rakovec have recorded Leta, an album that has garnered praise for its singular sound, “a release of the highest calibre that easily ranks alongside some of the most acclaimed performers in this genre and is cut out for the world’s most prestigious venues.
Andrej Predin, Slovenske novice
The album – although made by well-known musicians – will undoubtedly come as a major revelation for lovers of genre-bending musical escapades.
Mario Batelić, Radio Študent
Brdnik and Rakovec masterfully steer clear of stereotypes commonly associated with bands foregrounding the accordion and guitar. While Leta’s eleven compositions display a pronounced Mediterranean and South American (melancholy) sensitivity, the two musicians freely inform it with other motifs, ideas not commonly found in similar genres. What has emerged is a sophisticated album that caters to music appreciators, but whose poetic lyricism will also appeal to less discerning listeners.
Goran Kompoš, Mladina
The MUG Trio was formed in 2019. The band’s new self-penned compositions will be recorded and released in September.
