Unknown Mortal Orchestra have covered Rà-àkõ-st by Norwegian producer Lindstrøm. The cover comes as Unknown Mortal Orchestra announce a second tour of The States in 2013, with the NZ/USA outfit continuing to perform behind their second album, II.
For those unfamiliar with the Lindstrøm track we’ve included both the cover and original for the sake of comparison. While both versions let the listener loose their direction in a desert of mind melting sonic horizons, Unknown Mortal Orchestra replace Lindstrøm’s electronic edge with a psychedelic take.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra will also be playing at Splendour In The Grass 2013. Joining UMO will be fellow headliners Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean, TV On The Radio, The National, James Blake, Passion Pit and whole heap more.
