MarginaliaCat.No: INN087 Release Date: 24.03.2014 /
One year and a half after the European release of “Pieces” Baby Guru return with their luggage full of enthusiastic reviews, unforgettable experiences from their live performances in Greece and abroad but most of all full of brand new music. Their third album “Marginalia” is set for release across Europe in March 2014 and is the band’s most ambitious work to date.
“Marginalia” doesn’t thrive in the margins, but justifies its title with a never-ending expansion of the mind and body through its musical substance. Prins Obi, King Elephant and Sir Kosmiche are, as always, the exclusive creators of the album (composition, production, arrangement, recording) and with the help of the band’s unofficial fourth member (Christina) they attempt to fuse high quality pop with synthesizer music and riveting grooves. The album was mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, New York. 11 tracks create a cohesive whole, brimming with lyricism, electrifying, atmospheric sounds and irresistible hooks. Among them a little surprise: the first Baby Guru track sung in their native language.
“Marginalia” is out on cd, vinyl including bonus cd and digital album from Inner Ear.
‘Especially When’ is Modern and Classic all at once and Baby Guru doesn’t give a fuck how unstable Greece is (or was?)Dingus
Marginalia est donc un album plutôt envoutant, qui fait voyager aussi bien dans le temps que dans l’espace. Capable de nous bercer comme de nous réveiller il nous révèle un groupe non seulement mature, mais qui continue de grandir.Onlike
"The Greek psych band’s new album ‘Marginalia’ has just come out on Inner Ear, and it’s mighty. The baroque ‘Especially When’ and ‘We Need Some Space’ fuse romantic pop melodies and glistening synths, and the results are a triumph!"ΝΜΕ
"Avec ce disque épatant et étrange, Baby Guru démontre que si la Grèce n' a plus un rond dans son portefeuille, elle cache en elle d' immenses richesses"Plugged
