WATCH // UMO Performs Live for OPBmusic

Ruban Nielson stopped by OPBmusic to perform a stripped down version of II standout track, “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark).” Can you believe Ruban just acquired an acoustic guitar within the last couple of months? It’s hard for us to. Become mesmerized – stream the song above!

Unknown Mortal Orchestra are currently on tour with Foxygen and Wampire, playing Austin’s Mohawk tonight. You can find all their dates HERE.

“Unknown Mortal Orchestra were one of those live acts that could make it feel like an actual orchestra was rampaging through a place. Though there were only three people playing away on stage, their powerful brand of spacey psychedelic rock/pop was impossible to not focus on. The music they played ranged from sing-a-long songs for hallucinogenic drug lovers and people who seek to live out the lyrical scenarios told by Juicy J to material that felt like a condensed version of smoky kraut-rock and jam band grooves.”OC Weekly
