Published Apr 05, 2018If you've been itching to dig into Unknown Mortal Orchestra's Sex & Food, the time is now. The album is out now, and you can stream it all here via the powers of the internet.
The record is a follow-up to 2015's Multi-Love and promises to be UMO's most eclectic effort to date, dabbling in everything from funk, rock and disco to R&B. It was recorded in various locations all over the world, including the United States, New Zealand, South Korea, Vietnam, Iceland and Mexico.
A press release previously explained this of the new album:
The delightfully shape-shifting album filters real-deal serious themes such as "What are we consuming? How is it affecting us, and why does everything feel so bad and weird sometimes?" through a vibrant sonic lens that spans battered drum-machine funk, doomy and thrashing rock, and pink-hued psychedelic disco. It's not a dark record, per se. Even the album's title, Sex & Food, focuses on two of the most undeniably pleasurable experiences in life; positivity despite the strangeness of our times.
Sex & Food is out now via Jagjaguwar, and you can stream it all below.
As previously reported, UMO have a long sting of dates lined up in support of the album, and you can see all those here.
