Sounds Better With Reverb review
January 27, 2013

An epic blog offers a hearty review of Ummagma’s music: focus on ‘Kiev’. ‘Antigravity‘ is a diverse listen, at times straightforward pop, occasionally abstract and as a Soundcloud comment aptly notes “Holy early 4AD”! Ummagma is a duo (Alexx Kretov of the Ukraine and Shauna McLarnon of Canada), who formed in Moscow a decade ago. The pair didn’t release their debut album, or should I say albums, until mid last year (the self-titled twelve track LP and ‘Antigravity‘). ‘Kiev’ is a song taken from the latter, influenced by the likes of the Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance and The Sundays.
