Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have their own simultaneously faithful and idiosyncratic version of Anglophiliac psychedelia, like S.F. Sorrow or Syd Barrett squeezed through a MacBook microphone into a future world where lo-fi and sci-fi are practically the same thing. Which is to say: UMO sound new and old at the same time, a testament to founder Ruban Nielson's vision and scholarship. Most recent album II was better than the gently middling ratings it got, probably because it revealed itself so slowly. But the strong stuff sometimes takes a second to kick in, doesn't it? With L.A. disco punks De Lux, whose record collections must include all of James Murphy's secret favorites, and digital maniac Tobacco, whose albums are soundtracks to films no one quite has the guts to make yet.
