Review by Ashley Ashtray

Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s first and self-titled release is making waves this summer (catch them at The Independent SF this summer July 26). From their first track, populating the internet, “Ffuny Frrends” and tracks continuing through the album, there’s a consistent upbeat and catchy soulfulness that captures attention. From their funky drumming to their fuzzy guitars, it’s pure indie genius. There’s also a lo-fi feel to their recording, but with amped up psychedelic 60s inspired keyboards (think Black Moth Super Rainbow), it meshes to create an eclectic mix of 60s psychedelia, 70s guitar riffs, and 80s funky drumming for a distinct sound that is only Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Track picks:
1) Ffuny Ffrends
2) Bicycle
3) Thought Ballune
4) Jello and Juggernauts
6) Nerve Damage!

    G’Day! Musicpcrcollectiveorg,
    I was wondering on a similar note, There is an addiction waiting out there for you on the Internet. It could be a good addiction, if you like great actors performing great stories. They may be actors that you have not heard of before, and stories that you have only heard about. Orson Welles performs Captain Bligh from Mutiny on the Bounty. Carlton Hobbs analyses and uncovers the answer to the Speckled Band as Sherlock Holmes. Judy Garland sings her way into your heart in another old time radio show. These great actors and actresses make these classic stories come alive, and revive the art of storytelling for modern America. It is almost ironic to have an audio book in MP3 format revive the ancient art of storytelling, but the combination works very well. These old time radio shows in MP3 format are a treasure that you should take some time to enjoy.
    I look forward to your next post
