Self-Promotion Spotlight: Ume

Posted by - 06:58 PM on 10/15/11
Today I was browsing AP.net's Self Promotion Forum and found Ume, a dreampop/progressive indie rock band from Texas. Any fans of Mew, Asobi Seksu, Blonde Redhead, or Metric should check this out NOW. I hope to be reviewing their latest album, Phantoms, in the near future. Want a chance at getting your band featured here? Sign up for an AP.net account and make a thread about your band/project in the Self-Promotion Forum.

I think of "dreampop" as Beach House or The Radio Dept. I think UME definitely has some shoegaze influences, but not dreampop.

Not that it actually matters, because Phantoms is an awesome album regardless.
