Free Music Monday: Unknown Mortal Orchestra "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark) Little Dragon Remix"

By February 4, 2013

Follow me on:

Artist: Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Track: "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark) Little Dragon Remix"
From: (not actually from) II LP
Label: Jagjaguwar
Released: February 5, 2013

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have just released their second LP, II. And, sure enough, it takes Ruban Nielson's wobbly, washed-out, psychedelic-pop to more band-oriented places, loses the hip-hop-ish edge that rattled beneath the self-titled UMO LP's home-made beat-loops.

Where II takes UMO to more rockist places, the Little Dragon remix drags them, predictably, in another direction entirely. Which would be: to the dancefloor. Run through the Swedish electro-minimalist's filter, the Sunshine pop of "Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)" gets turned into a piece of proggy space-disco. Photo Neil Krug
