Ume at CMJ 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)

Back in June we mentioned that Ume had signed to Modern Outsider, who will release their debut full length Phantoms on August 30. We're still eagerly awaiting that album, and fortunately, as we wait Ume are continuing to tour. Their last run brought them to NYC twice in early June, and they'll return to the city for two shows this week. Ume play Pianos on Thursday (tonight, 8/11) with Me You Us Them, The Prids, Appomattox, Contramano, and Virgin Wolves and Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday (8/13) with Stockholm Syndrome and Seth Winters. Tickets are on sale now for the Brooklyn Bowl show which is earlier on the same night that The Naked and Famous play the venue.

You can pre-order Phantoms now from the Modern Outsider webstore as a CD and LP with album download. Check out the album artwork and tracklist below.

Awesome venue (brooklyn bowl) amazing show for Ume! Lauren and Erik are just seriously the most friendliest and hard working couple in music since Thurston & Kim from Sonic Youth. I eagerly await my translucent pink vinyl copy of Ume's "phantoms" album with my digital download! Btw awesome site guys, I am a writer for and I always love to see other sites that actualy care about music as Brooklyn Vegan obviously does... That Steve Albini is written about just confirms you guys have great taste. As a urban dweller I am glad we have you guys. If you get a chance check out my interview with Lauren from Ume. Is there a mailing list I can sign on to w/ you guys?

I used to be disappointed just because of page rank of my site. It was very low. Finally I have found quality blog commenting services that assisted me very much. I use blog commenting continuously now!
