LISTEN // Unknown Mortal Orchestra ‘Multi-Love’ Streaming on NPR ‘First Listen’ and CBC ‘First Play’

JAG262-UMO_FC-1425

Next week marks the release of Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s third and most revolutionary full-length, Multi-Love, out 5/26 on Jagjaguwar. This week, NPR Music is sharing a stream of the record one-week prior to release via their First Listen feature, while, in Canada, CBC First Play is sharing the record with their audience. Also, for those who haven’t come across it yet, Pitchfork published an amazing and revealing look into the life and inspiration of frontman Ruban Nielson; it’s a MUST READ.

UMO just completed a stretch of warm-up shows in the Pacific Northwest in preparation for a six-week tour of Europe and the US, and by all accounts, impressed mightily. The Eugene Weekly said UMO

“proved versatile and adaptive, unafraid of pinning a disco undercarriage to the raw, ethereal fuzz of their live sound. This is a talented band on the upswing, and they compel movement.”

Be sure to catch the band on their upcoming tour, and don’t wait to get tickets, as shows are selling out in advance.

“II still traffics in, and thrives on, its air of strangeness and unknowability, but that just makes its moments of shimmery warmth that much sweeter.” – Stephen Thompson at NPR
