SLCene Suggests: Ume at Kilby Court

by on March 25, 2014

Ume

UME, KILBY COURT, Thursday, March 27, 7 p.m., $8

The first time I heard Ume, the reaction was pretty immediate, and pretty typical of how I react when I get exposed to another raw, straightforward, guitar-bass-drums trio: “Hell ya!” The Texas trio leans toward the bluesy and metallic at times, and hooky, harmony-laden tunes reminiscent of ’80s so-called “college rock” at others. I could see fans of everyone from Throwing Muses to Heartless Bastards to Cream and Hendrix ¬†totally digging the new album, Monuments, if they never heard Ume’s excellent 2011 debut, Phantoms. Lauren Larson has a fine rock and roll voice, and a mean way with guitar riffage, while her husband Eric and drummer Rachel Fuhrer hold down the rhythm section. I Hear Sirens and Grass open the show.
