Ruban Nielson's Unknown Mortal Orchestra

"Some of you might think this is weird, no wonder, it's not exactly normal but what the f#*k."
Frank Zappa




As the rest of the guitar blog community talks about Guthrie Govan's Aristocrats, I wanna let you know about the Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Although you hear the vocals way better on the studio version, it's cool to see the trio doing this tune live. The song is called "Jello and Juggernauts", and I don't know what it's about. But this tune grooves sooo badass in some alien/soul/pop/retro, lo-fi cartoon theme way. And I can't get it out of my head this week.

UMO is the brainchild of New Zealand to Portland, Oregon transplant Ruban Nielson, the singer and guitarist. New Zealand via Portland... I mean, what else do ya need to know?
