Marinada is a Croatian quartet who (at least on this release) have yet to find a delay pedal or looping effect they don't like. Minimalist, hypnotic, synths and heavily-processed guitar / bass, hushed/often buried male vocals (all in Croatian), perhaps a less pretentious version of The XX? Excellent gray weather / late night music, everything worthy of play.

NO FCCs NOTED (but note that I don't speak Croatian)

RIYL: dark clouds, drizzle, Eno, Fripp, Pere Ubu in its ambient moments.

1. free/dn, slow build-up with chanting vox, atmosphereic
2. dn, echoing, looping, rondo-esque effect
3. dn, moody, droney
4. dn, more bleep / bloop, theremin in the background?
5. dn, almost has a pop melody, tricky a capella ending
6. dn, spooky synth wail counterpoint to low-end
7. dn, wavering synth and spacey plucked guitars with choral effects
8. dn+, more choralized vox and an odd cold synth squiggle to end
9. dn+, static pops as percussion, guitars piped in from the next room, a capella ending
10. dn, looping, pinging
11. dn/free, vocals only (though treated), reminiscent of Balkan men's choirs
12. dn+, pinging synths along with super echo-return circular vox
13. dn+, more swirly synth that throbs through the vocals until dropping to lower simpler finish
