Ummagma – Lama

Ummagma is a duo formed when Canadian Shauna McLarnon and Ukranian Alexx Kretov met in Moscow. They reside in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada and apart form their love to frozen territories, they share a love to Cocteau Twins, The Sundays and Slowdive. A perfect mix of influences that rightly classifies them under the nugaze movement and earned the praise of  Robin Guthrie, Malcolm Holmes (Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark) and Swervedriver’s Graham Bonnar.

The journey started in 2003 in s DIY manner until they found the way to a proper album, “Antigravity” which was released in 2012 followed by “Ummagma” the same year. In 2013 they released a single called “Rotation/Live and Let Die” followed last year by an ep called “Split” and a mini album with the remixes of the opening track of “Antigravity“, “Lama”.

Lama” does not only come to shake the dancehalls around Europe-where they are highly appreciated-but also to express the band’s admiration to pop musicand reconnect it to their genre. We are talking about 80’s pop (A Copycat remix) and old-school trance (Irregular Disco Workers Acid Feel remix)  with some touches of techno (Alexander Robotnick remix) and Broadcast’s electro (Theatre of Delays remix). Believe it or not it is a remix album that you are listening to to the end, which is a bit unusual not only with remix albums but also with 12” maxi singles.

If you don’t live in Whitehorse you can find them here:
