Unknown Mortal Orchestra

American/New Zealand trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra release their second album, 'II', early in February. If the band is a new name to you - join the club! Thus far, this is the only track I've heard, but I like it a great deal and will certainly be forming an orderly queue for the LP. I presume it must be in their press release, as 'Stevie Wonder producing Plastic Ono Band into Nuggets-like gems' is the phrase that seems to pop up in many online reviews of the band - I'm intrigued and look forward to hearing more.

'Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)' was originally a tour-only 7" single in September 2012.

Blimey, that guitar figure is lovely - almost like Bach or something similar. Very nice. I'll keep an ear out for more of them.

Their first album had some really strong songs, loved that overblown distorted drum soun, especially 'How Can u Love Me More'. I'll look forward to their new stuff.
