It is officially Summer to the point that my scalp has already completed one burn to revolting peel cycle, which means only one thing (musically anyway): it’s time for Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Not that it’s ever not time per se, but there’s something wonderfully satisfying about listening to Ruban Nielson’s frenetically sweet vocals and arrangements, doused in the Lo-Fi fuzz which makes it sound like the light picnic breeze you’re heading to has already wafted its way through.
Brimming with palpable emotion and delicate psychedelic dexterity through UMO’s audible equivalent of a summer haze, ‘Multi Love’s title track is the perfect accompaniment to a hot and hedonistic afternoon. Get on it, but based on what Nielson’s saying, maybe not with two people at the same time. Just sayin’.
