unknown mortal orchestra

We’re already big fans of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and especially their album from earlier this year II, but we may now like them even more for their ability to surprise us. Covers are one thing, but covering an electronic dance music pioneer like Lindstrøm as a guitar band, and making it sound wholly your own is quite special indeed. UMO’s take on “Rà-àkõ-st” manages to retain the dance grooves of the original while also employing the same hazy warped rock aesthetic of their own music. Check out the song below.
