Ummagma / Sounds of Sputnik



I've posted about both albums and bands before but I feel the need to give it another push.

Trust me...if you are not into either band yet, you need to be!!

Both are fantastic examples of dream-pop/shoegaze loveliness.






Sounds of Sputnik is the brainchild of Roman Kalitkin, whose periodic collaboration with Canadian-Ukrainian indie rock dream pop duo Ummagma has culminated in the album 'New Born'.










Ummagma is Shauna McLarnon & Alexx Kretov, a Canadian-Ukrainian duo delivering an eclectic mix of dreampop, ambient/ethereal, shoegaze and space rock to create dreamy soundscapes.
