LISTEN: Unknown Mortal Orchestra Puts A Lo-Fi Funk Spin On Lindstrøm’s “Rà-àkõ-st”

 

Portland psych rock trio, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, released an excellent sophomore album this past February—which we still can't get enough of—yet they continue to love on fans hardcore, via a lengthy worldwide tour lasting from May until November, plus a cover of Lindstrøm's "Rà-àkõ-st," provided below. 


This version is as first-rate as the original six-and-a-half-minute showstopper, but now with a funky and captivating, psychedelic twist à la UMO. Let this be the badass soundtrack you need for those late-night/dawn drives this weekend.
