Full Album Stream: Utopium – Utopium

There isn’t a lot of info out there about this internationally blended quartet, so let’s let the music do the talking because with Utopium, the music is what it is all about.  The nine-track self-titled album isn’t very long, but the music contained therein is more than enough to alter your mood.  Utopium is light on vocals and heavy on their indie/alt rock musicianship.  The band has been a way for a while prior to the release of their new album.  Utopium formed in the late 90s and released a couple of EPs and full-length albums throughout the years.  Their new self-titled work was released 28 April 2014.

For fans of A Place to Bury Strangers, Mogwai, My Bloody Valentine, Slint, The Jesus And Mary Chain…

  1. Nice 🙂 Bit of a lo-fi ’90s Indie feel to this which really resonates with me. The moody, introspective tone makes for an effective and luxuriant come-down when one is feeling a bit ‘metal’d out’.

    Thanks also for mentioning Slint, a band I’ve been meaning to check out for a while but keep forgetting to: there’s a feature on them in the latest edition of Prog magazine this month if you’re a fan?
