UMMAGMA: Reyes del Pop


Estos días estuve escuchando después de varios años joyas del pop con las que crecí como "Real Life" de Simple Minds, "Ink" de The Fixx o "Achtung Baby" de U2 y como llamado por una fuerza metafísica vino a mis manos -o a mi inbox para ser más precisos- el doble debut de un grupo formado entre Ucrania y Canadá: Ummagma.

La música que hacen Shauna McLarnon (Canadá) y Alexx Kretov (Ucrania) podría ser calificada como pop moderno -¿alguien se acuerda de la etiqueta "modern rock"?- pero en la construcción de sus canciones/hits se las ingenian para regalarnos guiños a genios como Bowery Electric, Brian Eno, Michael Brook, etc.    Definitivamente Ummagma no es una banda pop tradicional, lo suyo quizás va por la senda de proyectos como The Ecstasy of St. Theresa que, como ellos, provenían de la Europa menos mainstream.

Por lo escuchado en el par de discos que han lanzado este 2012, "Antigravity" y "Ummagma", el dueto McLarnon/Kretov está llamado a legar a la Historia gemas del pop que esperemos lo rescaten del atraso y estancamiento en el que éste se encuentra desde hace varios años. La industria y los medios no son los mismos de hace unas décadas por lo que el futuro de Ummagma podría ser incierto. ¡Disfruta de ellos ahora melómano!

UMMAGMA: Kings of Pop


In the past few days, after not hearing them for several years, I have been listening to some real pop gems that I grew up on – like "Real Life" by Simple Minds, "Ink" by The Fixx, and "Achtung Baby" by U2 and I guess you could say that a metaphysical force drew something else that is priceless into my hands -or into my inbox, to be more precise – the double album debut by the a band that took form between Ukraine and Canada. This band is Ummagma.

The music Shauna McLarnon (Canada) and Alexx Kretov (Ukraine) make could be described as modern pop, though someone may also recall the label “modern rock”. However, what can be said here is that, the way their songs/hits develop seem to hint at or glimmer like geniuses such as Bowery Electric, Brian Eno, and Michael Brook, among others. Ummagma is definitely not a traditional pop band; they are more likely following along the path of various other projects, including The Ecstasy of St. Theresa, who, like them, also have their roots in the less mainstream side of Europe.

Having listened to their two discs “Antigravity” and “Ummagma”, both of which they released simultaneously in 2012, it seems that this McLarnon/Kretov duo have also been called on to bequeath gems of pop music to history – gems that hopefully will rescue it from the backward state and stagnation that has characterized the world of pop music for the past few years. Judging from the fact that the music industry and the mass media are not the same as they were a few decades ago, one would think that the future of Ummagma might be uncertain. However, in terms of genuine music lovers and audiophiles, their songs are already freely available for all to enjoy and come highly recommended!
