Unknown Mortal Orchestra is by far one of my favorite bands. Their psychedelic style is infectious and will have you humming or singing the tune in your head. The band released their self-titled debut album June 2011. Prior to the release of the album, the lead track from the album "Ffunny Ffrends" was released on, Singer and guitarist Ruban Nielson's anonymous Bandcamp profile on May 17, 2010. Within hours blogs, including Pitchfork, were abuzz over song and attempted to learn the identity of the artist. After online debates, Nielson eventually claimed the track as Unknown Mortal Orchestra's. Immediately after the album's release it began receiving positive reviews from critics. The album received an 8.1 from Pitchfork and was described as, "an expert use of space rare for such a lo-fi record, UMO manages a unique immersive and psychedelic quality without relying on the usual array of bong-ripping effects." The song "Jello and Juggernauts" is one of those songs which can send chills up the listener's body. Nielson's vocals reverberate as he projects his lyrics and the added distortion provides an incredible psychedelic vibe . "How Can You Love Me" showcases the band's musical talents, particularly the sweet bass licks. UMO's debut album is a delightful musical experience. At the very least, make sure you add a few UMO tracks to your Spotify playlist, Unknown Mortal Orchestra is truly something special.
