UN­KNOWN MORT MOR­TAL ORCHES­TRA

Q (UK) - - Review | New Albums - TOM DOYLE

IC-01 HANOI SE­CRETLY CANA­DIAN, OUT 26 OC­TO­BER Hanoi rock­ing from Ore­gon-based psy­che odd­balls.

Four al­bums into a ca­reer that has dab­bled in murky ’ 70s rock, trippy disco and dreamy bal­ladeer­ing, Un­known Mor­tal Orches­tra had ex­tra time on their hands when record­ing this year’s Sex & Food in Hanoi. In­stead of do­ing the tourist thing, they noo­dled on ex­per­i­men­tally in the stu­dio. The re­sult is this in­stru­men­tal al­bum of dark funk and jazz that tries to lo­cate the miss­ing links be­tween Sly Stone, Can and the fur­ther-out reaches of Miles Davis (the trum­peter be­ing Niel­son’s fa­ther Chris). If a tad skro­nky in parts and slight at 28 min­utes, the deep grooves of IC- 01 pull you in. Lis­ten To: Hanoi 2 | Hanoi 3 | Hanoi 6
