Jagjaguwar Welcomes Newest Signee – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The Jagjaguwar family is out-of-this-world excited to announce the signing of Unknown Mortal Orchestra! Led by songwriter and guitarist Ruban Nielson, UMO is a perfect concoction of psychedlia and soul. Bassist Jacob Portrait and drummer Greg Rogrove round out the line-up.

Today, we have the great pleasure of sharing their first single “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark).”Premiering this morning at The Fader, the single is a nod to their forthcoming album, expected for release in early 2013. Stream below!

UMO will join Grizzly Bear as support for their September dates! They’ll then go on to tour throughout the fall, with stops at Pygmalion, Midpoint Music, Corona Capital, Rhythm and Alps, Pyramid Rock and Peats Ridge Sustainable Arts & Music festivals! Full list of dates below! The gang will also have a tour-exclusive 7″, featuring an a-side of “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)” and a b-side of “Waves of Confidence.”
