If you like UMO you might like Mint Chicks. It was the main guy's old band and had more of the shit-gaze sound that was popular in the late 00s. Back in the day they'd spend half of the year in Auckland, NZ and the other half in Portland, OR. In NZ and Australia they're pretty big (think Arcade Fire) but were completely unknown in North America, so I'd see them a lot at little basement shows and such with maybe 5 people, before they went back and played 1,000+ venues. I think they kind of liked the anonymity up here, and tested out all their new material.
Kinda reminds me of a Clinic album we wore out in the early 00s but more upbeat and varied. They'll owe you a beer next time you see them, I'll be picking up an album
