Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The lo-fi quality of the eponymous debut by New Zealand/Portand band, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, gives it a mysterious tone, like it’s some long lost album that was found buried in a time capsule.

The crunchy guitars and thick, muddy beats are straight out of the psychedelic scene of the late 60s, while the melodies and choruses are reminiscent of 70s glam rock.

With songs about friends who make you laugh, shiny bicycles and Jell-O, the debut album from Unknown Mortal Orchestra would be perfectly suited as the new theme music for Sesame Street…if Big Bird and Snuffleupagus were dropping acid.
