Unknown Mortal Orchestra has released a song “SB-05”. This follows the announcement that the band will be performing at Haven Festival.
The track is about 28 minutes. According to Pitchfork, this is the latest installment of the band’s instrumental tracks series, which is usually shared on Christmas day. The tradition began in December 25, 2013 as a message of “MERRY XMAS” was posted. This was the first release since Ruben Neilson’s Blue Record EP, which was an expansion of II.
The track has various sets of beats mashed up into one with fast paced drumming and guitar starting the track, to slow paced jazz ending the track. The song has a old school touch to it just as the previous releases in the series. The track can be listened to below.
