Ume

Meshing guitar-based hard rock with the raw passion of punk rock and the melodic sophistication of pop, Ume are an Austin, Texas-based trio who've earned a growing following for their relentless touring schedule, explosive performances, and clever but unpretentious music. The story of Ume (pronounced "Ooh-may") begins at a skatepark in West Columbia, Texas in 1995, where 15-year-old Lauren Langner was playing a show with Twelve Blades, a thrashy local punk band. Langner had played piano and oboe in school bands and grew up with her parents' Jimi Hendrix and Deep Purple records, but when she was 12, she borrowed one of her brother's guitars and figured out how to play Nirvana's "Come as You Are," though her small hands forced her to find unusual ways to form the chords. Langner joined Twelve Blades when she was 14, and after playing their set at the skatepark, she was approached by Eric Larson, a fellow teenage musician who played bass and liked her performance. Before long, the two formed a musical and personal relationship, and in 2002, Lauren and Eric formed Ume with drummer Jeff Barrera, an old friend who they had met at an Unwound show.

Before long, Lauren and Eric left Texas for Pennsylvania, where they attended college, but they returned home every few months to practice with Jeff and keep the band together, playing shows when schedules permitted. A gig in Brooklyn brought Ume to the attention of the New York indie label Pretty Activity, which released the band's debut recording, Urgent Sea, in 2005. In 2007, Lauren and Eric returned to Austin, Texas, and Ume became a greater priority in their lives, as the trio began hitting the road as often as possible, and issued an EP in 2008. Lauren and Eric also got married, and Lauren began billing herself as Lauren Larson or Lauren Langner Larson. In 2011, the hard-working band released their second album, Phantoms, via Modern Outsider Records, and that same year Rolling Stone declared that Ume were one of America's best unsigned bands. In 2013, Ume signed on with respected indie label Dangerbird Records and began working with a new drummer, Rachel Fuhrer. The band went into the studio with producer Adam Kasper, and in early 2014 Ume released their third and most accomplished album to date, Monuments. When not busy with Ume, Lauren Langner Larson works with Austin's Girls Rock Camp, a nonprofit organization that helps girls learn how music can be used as a medium of expression and empowerment. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

This band was one of many Alternative bands that made my summer back in 2011. I got Phantoms and it's a great album. I'm never sick of hearing it. Ume come back with a new album in 2014 please?!

Amen to the above! Phantoms is a great album!
if you're reading this, please look up Ume's website and send them an e-mail asking if they would please submit their newest album, Phantoms, to Pandora. It's fantastic, light-years ahead of what they have here now, and deserves to be heard.
