ubik. / Press

“ubik. provided what turned out to be an movie based on sound without sight. They grabbed at many different sounds and tempos and energies. They played for themselves and for the crowd. Having seen them construct their set list only minutes before, the sequence ended up working in a terrific manner, as it offered many of the bands facets. Every member of the band delivered a fantastic performance in their own right, and together, they delivered once hell of a performance. ubik. delivered humor, talent, and very strong communication to the crowd. Each band shook the walls, made us move, and made our ears ring, and ubik. topped it off with one hell of a reminder that music, whatever the genre, is art; is communication, and can be very powerful.”

“They are just as good as Jefferson Airplane circa ’67 mashed up with Tool circa ’97 and I’m not kidding. This album builds, shreds, spaces-out, breathes, crushes and more. A great listen cover to cover. Oh, Ubik sports dual bass players, too. Check that shit. Word on the street is a new album in the works, so let’s hear it already!”

“their sound is a perplexing blend of the more experimental anarcho punk of the late 80s and early 90s (Submission Hold) and the rowdier descendants of the prog-rock scene (Mr. Bungle). ubik is certainly not for everyone, but they're definitely a band that should be explored by adventurous listeners.”

“This CD is full of well-written, well-played agit-robocore and it completely resonates... The intensity of their live show translates very well to disc.”

“Not only is the music out-of-this-world great, but the poetry within the lyrics is absolutely gorgeous. Such a voice combined with so much beauty within the lyrical content is almost too much to grasp. It's heavy, pretty, fun, deep, and there's a little bit of something in it for everyone.”

“No matter what kind of music you like, you should make an effort to see this band play. Keep your eyes and ears attuned for more shows and more press, because I think they're going to take over the world....or at least Seattle and Portland. I can only hope we're ready.”
