Sounds of Sputnik and Ummagma
If you are a frequent reader of this blog you know I like many styles of music but I have a soft spot for electronica, shoegaze and dream pop.
One of my favorite current bands to combine those styles is Ummagma. They now have a new side project call Sounds of Sputnik.
In their own words...
"Sounds of Sputnik is the brainchild of Roman Kalitkin, whose periodic collaboration with Canadian-Ukrainian indie rock dream pop duo Ummagma has culminated in this 'New Born' LP. This album also features Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver/ Brian Jonestown Massacre) on 'Overdrive', and an array of remixes, including by Malcolm Holmes (Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark) and Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn/ Lords of Acid)."
It will be released on August 25, 2014 on Ear to Ear Records.
Check it out below.
