Ummagma – Antigravity (2012)
GREAT ALBUM 5 STARS
Ummagma (UA/CAN) is a Canadian-Ukrainian duo that consists of Alexx Kretov and Shauna McLarnon. The debut album “Antigravity” is a mixed-emotion experience of beautiful melancholy and uplifting euphoria all found in one album, virtually taking the listener on a journey via the band’s musical interludes. This album will appeal to fans of modern bands like Blonde Redhead and Asobi Seksu, as well as older 80s bands of the 4AD epoch (especially Cocteau Twins) and Talk Talk, with a little Sputniks Down, Robert Fripp, Brian Eno and Slowdive wedged in there too. Ummagma has essentially achieved an incredible feat of bringing together some otherwise seemingly non-combinable musical genres (post-rock/dreampop/folk rock/progressive rock/shoegaze) all within on album and they have done so rather handsomely. This album lends a sense of intrigue about what’s to come next from this dynamic duo.
