[Song of the Day] Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Swing Lo Magellan”
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
“Swing Lo Magellan”
Unknown Mortal Orchestra, a DHM favorite (we interviewed Ruban Nielson at this year’s Treefort Music Fest … you can read that here), will release an acoustic EP called Blue Record this October. Today they shared a track that will appear on said EP, a cover of Dirty Projectors’ “Swing Lo Magellan.” This is a perfect song for Nielson’s magical string-plucking fingers and it gives a peek into just what that voice can do when it’s allowed to just be a voice. Small murder, this. Just listen to it.
