"NeuNeu" (single version)

from Stereolith

Formed in Paris in 1993 by Amaury Cambuzat on vocals, guitar and keyboards, and bassist Olivier Manchion, Ulan Bator’s sound has been partly determined by their changing line-ups or collaborations – with Faust and Swans’ Michael Gira, among others. Over 20 years their music has taken in kraut-y repetition, post-rock guitar flourishes, kosmische synth work, intimate whispering and pounding drums.
