No Marked Tracks

Post rock with guitar/cello.

The Bitter Lake

We're cheating slightly, as I've already uploaded a version of this song. But hopefully everyone will agree that it sounds a whole lot better. Plus we've added some (discrete) synth parts and have even gone to the trouble of making a video. More tunes on our Soundcloud.

Riding Out

The road trip song - a galloping guitar ramble underpinned by soaring synth strings. By Sredni Vashtar

Bitter Lake

Inspired by the Adam Curtis documentary, recorded with a variety of gear and 'mastered' using LANDR.

Aircraft Recognition (live)

What a difference a few months makes. The original has been reworked and extended and was recorded live a few days ago on the London stage (the Alleycat in Denmark Street). A song by Sredni Vashtar.

The Mission

Whenever someone writes cross-genre, it always leaves you wondering what flavor their potpourri will take. When you see post-rock and shoegaze together, you might also have an idea of what you'll be hearing, but throw a piano in there, and you've caught everybody off kilter. That's what this song does, but nicely so. [more inside]

Visualization

Tastefully blending several genres together, including indie or alternative rock, dreampop, space rock, psychedelia, ambient and shoegaze. Sounds of Sputnik is a project producing a sound that immediately brings several associations to the surface - like dreaming, space, flight, exploration, reflection. Worth a listen whether or not you have or have not traditionally gone in the above-mentioned genres of music. [more inside]

Titry

Since music is a powerful force capable of evoking an endless array of images to one's mind, this represents just the diverse dynamic space, vocal free, to be a canvass for whatever the listener can dream up. This is for dreaming, after all :)

Ambiguous Sense of the Future

Powerful swirling and driving full sonic force, enveloped in a mishmash of postrock, shoegaze, and noise rock. [more inside]

Back To You

In the spirit of "Superstar" by legendary art-punk band Sonic Youth (who were covering The Carpenters chart-breaking track), here is 'Back to You'. Sonically similar, but content-wise very different. No superstar imagery from the perspective of a groupie here. Just some self-searching and hopefully grounding elements. [more inside]

Titry

Actors are always celebrated for their chameleonic ability to change characters and roles. Ummagma possesses this quality, among a small number of shape-shifting bands currently out there. This song is very different from anything else created by Ummagma. Hope you enjoy this. [more inside]

Astronomical Summer 2

The pulsing drive of this tune unquestionably has a swaying effect and, taken together with this song's layers and subtleties seems to make all the difference. Sway sway sway!!! [more inside]

Autumnmania

For anyone who loves Tortoise and especially the fired up drive of their first two albums, or maybe Sputniks Down, you will likely love an ear-scoop of this Ummagma track. [more inside]

Visualization

This instrumental explores not only ambiences and walls-of-sound seemingly inspired directly by cosmic travels, but also features electronics, samples, drones, and beautifully melodies peppered with a lot of dissonance, creating sonic tapestries perfectly suited for reflecting, reading an Arthur C. Clarke (or Isaac Asimov) book and taking a journey through the stars. This is Sounds of Sputnik.

Motoroller

The smooth fusion of dream pop and shoegaze is always something I welcome and a goal that is always in sight in the case of this song by Sounds of Sputnik - perhaps this is what is meant by the term nugaze - somewhat of a reshaping of the heavier dirtier shoegaze sounds dating back to the early 1990s a la My Bloody Valentine and Medicine. This reminds of of some of Kevin Shields' lighter work that he's done for various soundtracks. How do you see it?

The Mission

Space rock is a term that is often over-used for various psychrock tunes, but it is dead on for this track from Sounds of Sputnik. Or space post-rock or even space post-rock shoegaze. Looking forward to your take on that.

Ambiguous Sense of the Future

Post-rock always seems embedded with the sense that something is dire; however, shake it up a bit to get a kind of post-rock indie shoegaze vinaigrette and Sounds of Sputnik is likely what you would come up with. This is Ambiguous Sense of the Future.

Titry

"Titry" translates into English as "credits", as in for a film. It was inspired by the idea that this would make a great intro or outro song for the listing of film credits, whether or not we actually decided to pitch the song for that purpose. Maybe we will one day :)

Adaptation

Soundscapes are part of the fabric for various genres of music and this song creates one merging several genres, yet is still hard to put your finger on.

Astronomical Summer

If you can imagine smooth post-rock and psych-rock crossed and infused with a shoegaze element, this is likely what you would hear. Sounds of Sputnik

I Will Make You Understand

Just a little Garageband thing. I've had that spoken loop forever, anyone know where it comes from?

magic bullet

Small sad song about seeking a quick fix. This and other texts here, music here.
