Ui – August Song

New York’s Ui were part of the American ‘Post-Rock’ scene; whatever that term meant to people or, indeed, the band themselves. There were similarities with fellow travellers Tortoise, that almost woody sound and a distinctly American play on the remnants of Krautrock. Ui however, were looser, funkier, and more playful; plus, they used Banjo. This is the opening track from their wonderful 1996 album ‘Sidelong’, and should bring a touch of August to this February morning.
