Umlaut - To Your Poverty Quietly Go

SKU Romero ROM 009
"‘To Your Poverty Quietly Go’ is the second album from Umlaut, the brainchild of Bär McKinnon (Mr. Bungle, Secret Chiefs 3). Swinging from meticulous chamber-pop majesty to unapologetic 4-track romps, the album plays like a twisted film score, with lush orchestrations, elegiac meditations and crushing bursts of gleeful irreverence."

"After spending years on the international circuit as a member of Mr. Bungle and the Secret Chiefs 3, Bär (pronounced "bear") settled in Melbourne and went into hibernation, writing a mountain of songs. The result is UMLAUT. Playing like a film score, UMLAUT is a mix of Burt Bacharach - infused pop set in a cartoon - like world. The offbeat tunes fuse saxophone, flute and keyboards with more traditional rock guitars - an appealing mix that is quirky, energetic and beautiful."

"Anyone who played the sax in Mr Bungle is obviously going to walk on the weirder side of pop, and this second record from Bar McKinnon’s Umlaut project is no exception. Drifting between twisted sax-driven club tunes and fuzzy electro pop rock, this is surely one to keep you guessing throughout. Clocking in at a click over half an hour, it never outstays its welcome and is really honest-to-god happy from start to finish, even if its wild style shifts come across as patchy as it goes on."-The Music
