don't you tell me how i feel.

That headline is sort of insane false advertising, not gonna lie. HOWEVER, Unknown Mortal Orchestra is my band crush of the moment. Their sound is both good-timey AND old-timey, full of tinny-sounding falsetto and brimming with 70s semi-tackiness. You can easily imagine it spinning on the rekkid player in someone’s basement.

Best I can tell, the group’s goal is to maintain some degree of anonymity (hence “unknown”) — you can’t dig up a whole hell of a lot about them. But NO MATTER. The point is, they have a glorious self-titled EP out, which you want to listen to, I promise.
