Cyril Glaume 6 mois après, Kintsugi reprend là où Arunachala s'était arrêté, avec 4 titres cette fois moins systématiquement cuivrés, mais carrément plus chantés. Bär continue de naviguer dans des eaux tranquilles, amicales, où passe parfois le fantôme d'un lointain passé bunglien. Le genre d'EP à écouter à l'heure du thé, sur de moelleux coussins.

Pour en savoir plus: Favorite track: ItchySweater.

gracefool It's kind of brilliant that the companion record to Arunachala should release on another treat-filled holiday. Both albums could be compared to a small candy sampler: a brightly colored package with each track conveying unique textures, filled with surprising delights. But unlike candy, there's no empty calories here!

Just six months after their Easter-themed EP 'Arunachala', more new music from Umlaut... and this time it's Halloween!

Meditative and charmingly addictive forays into experimental pop from the mind of Mr Bungle saxman Bär McKinnon, with some help from Melbourne legend Angus Leslie (Sex On Toast).

'Kintsugi' is more of a vocal affair than Umlaut's previous releases, think Bungle with a bit of Beach Boys, Beatles and Badalamenti.
