TUNE Unknown Mortal Orchestra - 'Swing Lo Magellan' (Jagjaguwar)
UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA –
‘SWING LO MAGELLAN’ TRACK
IMPACT DATE: 4/11
Unknown Mortal Orchestra releases new track Swing Lo Maggelan through Jagjaguwar. Unknown Mortal Orchestra is the brainchild of Ruban Nielson (The Mint Chicks) from New Zealand, who’s joined by drummer Greg Rogove alongside long time bass player Jake Portrait. Swing Lo Magellan is a cover of the Dirty Projectors song and is taken from forthcoming acoustic EP Blue Record (released 4/11).
The new EP follows on from the band’s highly acclaimed LP II (10/10 The Fly, 9/10 Uncut, 9/10 Clash, 4*’s The Guardian, 8/10 NME). Unknown Mortal Orchestra will return to the UK in November for shows at London’s Electric Ballroom on 7/11 and Manchester’s Academy 2 on 8/11.
