Unknown Mortal Orchestra have officially signed to Fat Possum for their self-titled debut LP out in June 2011 . UMO was initially conceived by New Zealand native, Ruban, to release some tracks via a bandcamp page to promote his limited addition vinyl in 2010. He pieced a band together, with a skilled producer, Jake, on bass and a brilliant teenage drummer named Julian to fill out the band. They are based in Portland. In their short career they have made such an impression with their live show that you can catch them on tour this spring with the Smith Westerns, Portugal. The Man, and Yuck later this summer. They bring break-beats together with 70 s pop harmonies and minimal Krautrock rhythm section.


Unknown Mortal Orchestra is like many new bands in that they seem to be recreating some fictional band in the past, in this case, a garage band from the 70's. But unlike many bands they do it in an otherwise original way. The melodies are long and novel, the vocals are charismatic and the songs are not too complex or too boring. vocals and drums always have a muddy "lo-fi" sound to them. The competent guitar work is crisp and wavering, which, combined with the flowery ornate riffs gives the record a hot glistening feel. The bass is quiet and sometimes hard to hear in keeping with the lo-fi theme, but if you crank up the volume you can feel it in the back as solid part of the music. The songs have an over all 70's pop/soul feel to them, but on closer inspection, the melodies and structure are modern and original. overall the album has consistent songwriting, no songs that sound too similar, no break from the lo-fi aesthetic, no dead spots, and no sad boring songs. the best part is that, even though this album is consistently interesting to listen to, it manages to also create a relaxed atmosphere within each song, not rushing anything.
