Ummagma Mashup Free Downloads

@ummagma
While the rest of the blogging world catches up to us in reviewing Ummagma‘s Lama, we are already onto the next scoop. Ummagma‘s Kiev has had three mashups including mixes with Lorde, Lupe Fiasco and Drake, all available as free downloads. The Lupe Fiasco mashup is particularly arse kicking.

vinylodyssey:

Panda Riot: Northern Automatic Music (Notes And Bolts Records & Tapes/Saint Marie Records 2013, 300 black vinyl)
Hailing from Chicago, Illinois; Panda Riot is a four piece outfit where shoegaze meets dream/noise/indie pop.
Northern Automatic Music is a dreamy treat that conjures thoughts of The Concretes, Florence and The Machine & Boards of Canada at certain junctures.
This entire album shimmers with a beautifully infectious sound which enfolds you, but it’s “Amanda in the Clouds”, “Black Pyramids”, “Good Night, Rich Kids” & “Golden Age” that are the real gems here.

Yep, fellows, we’re back. I think there’s no better opportunity to come back after such deep silent halt posting a fresh LP from our dear Ummagma, called Lama, which was released last Friday, May16th. Those familiar with their work won’t be surprised, and for those who aren’t, now you have a golden chance to dive into Ummagma’s magnific work. Just close your eyes and enjoy the trip! ;)

Now, the world of Emerald And Doreen about its brand new release:

Sneak Preview of New Ummagma ‘Lama’ LP

A preview for the forthcoming ‘Lama’ LP on Emerald & Doreen Recordings, to be made available on iTunes, Juno Download, Amazon, Beatport and other major digital platforms. Release date: May 16

On the trail of their double A-side single Rotation, released in December, dreampop shoegaze stars Ummagma celebrate their ethereal Stereolab-MBV-spirited uber-song ‘Lama’ with a mind-expanding package of eclectic remixes by an international roster of producers and artists, most of whom you might not directly connect to genres like noise rock or dreampop. Apart from their own Ukrainian and Canadian connections, this Ummagma LP is a uniting force of sonic satellites, bringing together Italy, Sweden, Germany, Brazil and Russia.

But this is exactly the point we usually drive home at Emerald & Doreen: bringing great new artists together in new ways to create art capable of transforming deep feelings and emotions into sounds and music. In this release, all remixers have contributed their own wavelengths and energy to create new versions of this great song.

The outcome is proof that beauty is found in diversity. Italy’s original electro new wave pioneer Alexander Robotnick sways with a spaced out, chilled dream pop version. Irregular Disco Workers add some severe 80s mood and 90s Acid feel. Copycat fuses a Moroder-esque synth disco arpeggio with My Bloody Valentine-style vocals and guitars to ingeniously please indie and disco lovers at the same time! Theatre of Delays delivers a heartbreaking emo house version that brings you into the fifth dimension. Label-makers go nogo turn Lama into a Stereolab-esque breakbeat beauty with Notwist-like sounds and 90s indie guitars. Mind Movies turn ‘Lama’ into a flipping, winding mechanical breakbeat butterfly, swirling around its own axis, and spinning a beautiful tumbling dance. Sounds of Sputnik add a 70s psychedelic edge to it, infusing this track with electro wonder. The overwhelming feeling you get after listening to all these variants is awe from taking part in such a cool ride!

Note to editors:
This release meets MAPL Canadian content requirements.

Dear Listeners,

My husband Jeff has been sick with a mysterious illness for several months. It’s not so mysterious any more. My man, my best friend, my soul mate, my partner-in-crime for 16 years has cancer. All. Fucking. Over. Lungs, brain, liver, bones.

We’re at the hospital. He is a warrior….

tonliststuff:

Após seu novo single “Rotation” ganhar vida, Ummagma comemora com lançamento de um album de remixes para a faixa “Lama”, que conta com diversos artistas como Copycat, Sounds of Sputnik e outros. Previsto para sair no dia 16/05, trago para vocês alguns links de download para aproveitarem antes mesmo do lançamento. E o melhor: aprovado pelos próprios integrantes da banda!

Ummagma ainda promete para esse ano novos projetos incluindo colaborações como Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) e Malcolm Holmes (Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark). É esperar pra ver!

Shoegaze Covers Of The Beatles

If you’ve ever wondered what The Beatles would sound like fed through Kevin Shield’s pedal board, then Japanese band ‘The Meeks’ have given us a pretty good indication.

Their album Beatless is all your favourite Beatles classics, put through the reverb wringer. The outcome is a fuzzy, soupy, melodic milkshake. And it’s pretty bloody lovely.
