Video/tour – Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Quirky song. ’70s-inspired video (shades of The Beastie Boys “Sabotage” if you ask me). It’s the latest video by Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the Portland-by-way-of-New-Zealand outfit led by Ruban Nielson. “Strangers are Strange” can be found on UMO’s June 2011 self-titled Fat Possum Records release.
