New Album Release – “Unknown Mortal Orchestra”

21 Jun

Unknown Mortal Orchestra...in all their glory.

Earlier this month I posted the song “Thought Ballune” by Unknown Mortal Orchestra. This was one of a handful of songs released on their EP. It’s a good sample but I want the whole meal. Today we can rejoice because today UMO release their eponymous debut. These guys have a psychedelic, funk swirled sound that manages to sparkle even in the confines of it’s lo-fi recording. Definitely in the spirit of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. Check out “Thought Ballune”  Then when you’re ready for more buy it on iTunes


Song of the Day – “Thought Ballune” Unknown Mortal Orchestra

29 May

Today’s song of the day comes from Unknown Mortal Orchestra. These guys have a cool psychedelic/60’s R&B sound that works its way into your ear. For an example check out “Thought Ballune” for their quirky and infectious style. I went to bed humming this song, and woke up the next morning, continuing where the melody left off. also follow them on twitter @UMO for some cool pics from the road. These guys are touring like crazy so check out their site to catch them in the flesh.
