mp3: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Modcast Mixtape

Staying true to their name, Unknown Mortal Orchestra revel in unrevealed obscurity, although private investigators everywhere will know singer Ruban Nielson as ex Mint Chicks. After a little time spent in New Zealand, they arrived in Portland for orchestration.

Ruban has compiled this weeks Modular Modcast. Modular say:

“It’s Bobby Brown in a spacesuit, it’s rhythm-n-blue-skies, it’s the darkside of pyschedelia mixed with crystal clear pop acapellas. Have a listen and check the tracklist below.”

Their self titled debut materialised via Fat Possum Records last week. Check out the mixtape and the beatific opening album track ‘Ffunny Ffrends’ below.
