Ume at The Rock Shop
I'm sure that I have heard "indie" bands which sound something like Ume. Breathy female lead vocals over a growling rhythm are nothing new. But Ume does bring something a little different to the table, namely metal-like thrashing. On most songs lead singer Lauren Larson bangs her head and tears into her guitar like it's 1982. And to think, before the show I was wondering why she had four guitars prepped (she used all four).
