A Million Watts of Sound reviews UNA today
Posted by Richard Larsen, March 19, 2013
A Million Watts of Sound gave UNA a glowing review on our new release The Laughing Man, released today. While we work very hard, and have great hopes, it is a happy experience to read this review. This is from a site that hears a lot of new music and it’s not easy to impress someone who listens to literally hundreds of records a week. A very big thank you from us, A Million Watts of Sound!
“I’m sitting here previewing the latest from UNA and wow…just WOW. This 5 song EP, The Laughing Man is absolutely… incredibly…freakin’ amazing! The trio are Richard Larsen (keys), Jennifer Nice (voice), Eddie Barajas(turntables).
This is my first time hearing the band and their unique sound really can’t be compared to anything else out there right now. An eclectic mix of sounds…bits of jazz, funk, soul, electronica, downtempo, and turntables paired with hypnotically sensual vocals…makes this is an instant favorite. I also REALLY LOVE the storytelling in the lyrics. So, yeah…there isn’t really a genre that you can categorize them in. Although, I do think they reflect elements of my longtime favorites, Massive Attack and Portishead. So if you like them, you’ll love UNA.”
