From Sounds of Sputnik ‘New Born’ Feat. Ummagma Released Aug. 25 on Ear to Ear Records

From EARBUDDY: Sounds of Sputnik is the songwriting alias for Roma Kalitkin from Russia. Even though he is a solo artist, he isn’t alone on his debut as Sounds of Sputnik — previous collaborators Ummagma join him on over half of the original songs here. New Born is a mix of psychedelic rock and shoegaze. It’s music that carries all of the atmosphere and texture of a shoegaze record with absolutely none of the pretense. It’s a psychedelic rock album that carries all of the hooks and experimentation, but none of the self-indulgence. New Born straddles a healthy line between catchy hooks and washed-out guitars. The tracks that bring Ummagma into the mix are excellent, in no small part to Shauna McLarnon’s vocals. However, on his own, the instrumentals “Blizzard” and “Shades of the Cosmos” offer a glimpse at a songwriter that’s able to create an arrangements fraught with emotion without actually speaking a single word.

This album also includes remixes by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and renowned British psych producer Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid), and features Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver, Brian Jonestown Massacre) on drums.
