In 2011, VUM released their first full-length album, Night Sun, on Secret Lodge Recordings. Night Sun lead the listener further into the jungle-choked latitudes of distant locales and explored the dark side of psychic war, whilst becoming a favorite of the underground blogosphere and a staple on Henry Rollins KCRW radio show. VUM now includes live drummer/percussionist, Scott Spaulding, who makes his first appearance on their 2012 seven inch single release- Laura Palmer/Are You Animal? (Secret Lodge Recordings). These two tracks show a shift deeper into the darkwave/ pop-noir spectrum of VUM’s aesthetic. Laura Palmer was hailed as a song that “will forever be cemented into your mind as a song that you loved deeply" by bloggers, a “pop culture fav” by USA Today, and is in constant rotation on L.A.’s college radio KXLU and in Rollins’ Saturday night KCRW set. VUM is now in the studio preparing for their highly anticipated 2nd full-length release. Read more on Last.fm.
