Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the nom de guerre of Portland-based songwriter and guitarist Ruban Nielson, announced dates for a 2013 tour in support of his upcoming album 'II,' due February 5 on Jagjauwar.

Nielson, who marries spry, nervy psychedelia with sharp soul touchstones, recently played the Pygmalion Music Festival -- with bassist Jacob Portrait and drummer Greg Rogrove -- and we have the entire set here to stream. After just a few songs, his deft hand at touching up pop hooks with just the right amount of roughness becomes evident.
