Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Portland, Oregon, United States
Unknown Mortal Orchestra first dropped into the world in late 2010 as a bandcamp account carrying a single called 'Ffunny Ffrends'. 'Ffunny Ffrends' was everything you imagined it might be - alien beatnik pop music that echoed 60s psychedelia and krautrock minimalism with just a hint of gentle weirdness that suggested its roots might equally lie in the verdant indie of the equally distant New Zealand scene. Ruban Nielson is a New Zealand native who had transplanted to Portland, Oregon, USA with his band The Mint Chicks.
