The weird world of Unknown Mortal Orchestra is a heady trip into psychedelic and lo-fi experimentation. Like Javelin’s enjoyable all-over-the-shop album No Más, the Portland-based band led by Kiwi Ruben Nielsen have an adept knowledge of pop hooks and melodies that pierce your consciousness regardless of what else is going on. Whether it’s the Beatles-esque guitar style of ‘Thought Ballune’, the Bibio-esque lo-fi bass-funk of ‘How Can U Luv Me’ or the distorted psych-rock of ‘Ffunny Ffrends’ and ‘Nerve Damage!’, their debut self-titled EP on The Sounds Of Sweet Nothing is worth picking up if you can find a copy. A debut LP is coming on Fat Possum in June.

If you’re a fan of Little Dragon, allow me to introduce you to their remix…
