Just in time for tonight's show at the Aladdin Theater, here's a new remix of an Unknown Mortal Orchestra song.
Norwegian producer Lindstrøm took apart UMO's excellent track "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)" and turned into a dizzying dance track that turns Ruban Nielson's tight songwriting into something expansive. The nine-minute track locks into an established groove for the first half, then starts toying with the boundaries, turning down corners and following intriguing threads. You won't hear much Unknown Mortal Orchestra in here, to be honest, but that's just fine. You can get all the Unknown Mortal Orchestra you need at tonight's show at the Aladdin, which is going to be a doozy.
