Unknown Mortal Orchestra

#sxsw #UnknownMortalOrchestra


Unknown Mortal Orchestra was initially conceived by New Zealand native, Ruban Nielson, to release some tracks via a Bandcamp page to promote his limited addition vinyl in 2010. He pieced a band together, with a skilled producer, Jake Portrait, on bass and Ruban's brother and fellow ex-Mint Chick member Kody Nielson. UMO brings break-beats together with 70's pop harmonies and a minimal Krautrock rhythm section.
