Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Swim And Sleep (Like A Shark)
Unknown Mortal Orchestra - One At A Time

Following up on the self-titled debut from a couple years ago, the new UMO long-player - simply referred to as II - is a swanky, jazz-influenced pop romp (I mean, really - the lo-fi funk hooks and hazy, psychedelic goodness is just oozing out from every single metaphorical nook and cranny on this thing) with lotsa bouncy melodies that just might appeal to fans of like-minded acts such as Portugal. The Man and/or Tame Impala, as well as other more established classic rock ensembles.

II will be released on February 5th, courtesy of Jagjaguwar
