Download: One Umbrella -- "eintrocinc"
The last time Team Clermont was in Austin, one of the more pleasurable experiences we had was meeting, and hanging out with, Sarah and Carlos from One Umbrella. Their last record, Solve, which today's download is from, was put out by our friends, Tell-All Records. I'd go into more detail describing their music, but fortunately for us all I won't have to as they're coming to Georgia soon to play the Table Of The Elements Festival No. 4. For those unfamiliar with TOE, inclusion in their festival is no small feat for a band like One Umbrella. TOE has put out records by some of the perennial all stars of experimental/avant-garde music, and Carlos and Sarah will share the stage with several heavyweights of the genre. Their set will be on Saturday, September 2nd, with recent Kranky Records signees and Atlanta natives, Deerhunter. The night will close with a headlining performance by none other than the Rhys Chatham Guitar Army. Having seen TOE's showcase this past spring at sxsw, of which Rhys Chatham was a part, I can safely say this event is not to be missed. I feel extremely lucky to have the opportunity to see another TOE event, and One Umbrella perform. Hope to see you there!
