Album Review: Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Monday 20th June, 2011 9:04AM

The emergence of Unknown Mortal Orchestra last year was one of those moments of new music where you actually sit up and take notice, listening to a tune for the first time which engages you and captures your attention in the way that you think back on it and revisit it in the days following that first experience. 'Ffunny Ffrends', released with all its mystery and slight anonymity was telling, and in many ways embodied the definition of the term 'hook'. It was with a certain level of surprise and satisfaction that I discovered that UMO was Ruban Nielson's new project in the months afterward. With that satisfaction though, came that sort of kicking-yourself-for-not-hearing-it-sooner moment when the similarities of the Mint Chicks' music and that of UMO were revealed.
