Today, while sifting through my Twitter feed, I noticed a Pitchfork news item that was retweeted by UMO. I couldn't believe it when the headline of this article read something along the lines of New UMO album and tour dates.
As I am not familiar enough with the lead single "Multi-Love" yet, I can only say that the sound of this track is light years away from their last two albums. The production is practically sumptuous, with crisp drums and synthesizers replacing the requisite psychedelic guitars and reverb. It's too early to say what my take is on their new direction, but the melodies of this song are already circling through my brain waves.
Have a listen for yourself on their soundcloud page.
