Ummagma, the indie rock duo featuring Canadian Shauna McLarnon and Ukrainian Alexx Kretov, has been busy over the past year. They released not one, but two full-length LPs last July in the form of Ummagma and Antigravity. Not the kind of musicians to rest on their laurels, the band has been tinkering with their existing works. They’ve released a handful of remixes, joined Ukrainian band Nameless for a single, and created a number of music videos. In other words, the creative process hasn’t slowed down one bit.
Earlier this month they announced a remix of “Lama” off of their Antigravity album. The new version was done by Jane Woodman, a shoegaze/darkwave artist from the San Francisco area who even handled the graphics. While the original version of the track features the dreampop sound the band has become known for, this new spin layers in extra guitar and vocals for a different feel. It’s not so much a day-to-night transformation, but the remix definitely has a darker tone to it.
For your listening pleasure, we’ve included both the original track…
and the remix.
If you like what you hear, both of Ummagma’s albums, Ummagma and Antigravity are available in their entirety (for free!) through their Bandcamp site. Stay tuned to The Indie Mine for news on Ummagma as the band is planning additional physical and digital releases in 2013.
