Video Wednesday: Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The exciting debut from Portland three-piece, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, came out yesterday on Fat Possum. Guitarist Ruban Nielson recorded the album after relocating to Portland from New Zealand and pieced a band together, with skilled producer, Jake, on bass and a brilliant teenage drummer named Julien to fill out the band. Check out rare live footage of them performing at Different Fur studios in San Francisco for Their performance of "Thought Ballune" & "Little Blu House" from the LP will air this Friday night on "The Daily Habit" on FUEL TV at 11pm EST.
