Uknown Mortal Orchestra will release a new album this spring.

'Sex & Food' will arrive on April 6 through Jagjaguwar and follow up 'Multi-Love'. It was recorded in a number of locations, including Seoul, Hanoi, Reykjavik, Mexico City,  Auckland, and Ruban Nielson's home studio in Portland.

Head below to watch the video for the band's new single, American Guilt. Speaking about it, guitarist and songwriter Neilson said:

"American Guilt is an attempt to capture some of the feelings floating around these days. In a perverse way I wanted to embrace this abandoned genre of rock music that I keep reading is "dead" and invite people to hear what this living dead genre sounds like in the UMO universe. It was recorded in Hanoi, Vietnam during monsoon season in a studio built for traditional Vietnamese music. Additional recording was done in Mexico City but our sessions were interrupted by one of the devastating earthquakes that occurred there last year. As we slept in the Parque de Mexico, unable to get back to our Air BnB, we heard a man yell "Viva la Mexico!" and I put this in the song out of respect for them."

When we last spoke to Brian Fallon it was November 2016, eight months on from the release of his debut solo album, 'Painkillers’. He was riding the wave of newfound creative freedom that comes with going it alone, already writing songs for its follow up and making promises for the future.

Field Music - Open Here (Album Review)
Fri 09 Feb 2018
That the Brewis brothers are now fathers to young children is evident on ‘Open Here’, and parenthood has given Field Music a brand new way of experiencing the world, its politics and its stereotypes.
Franz Ferdinand - Always Ascending (Album Review)
Tue 13 Feb 2018
The most telling thing about the early 2000s post-punk revival was its lack of staying power. Razorlight, Maxïmo Park, the Futureheads and countless others came flying out the gates, but by the end of the decade they had more or less faded out. You could cite over-saturation, or cycles in trends, as the reason behind that, but much of it had to do with the style's limited scope.
Ezra Furman - Transangelic Exodus (Album Review)
Wed 14 Feb 2018
Road songs are part of the fabric of rock ‘n’ roll. From the earliest greaser anthems through the open roads of west coast pop and manic rockabilly chase scenes, they’ve always been there. On ‘Transangelic Exodus’, Ezra Furman offers a new twist on the style, keeping both the wings and the wheels as he soundtracks “a personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga”.
Hookworms - Microshift (Album Review)
Thu 08 Feb 2018
Hookworms’ third album, ‘Microshift’, represents a change for the Leeds outfit. Here they emerge from beneath the mysterious shroud they previously adopted, with layers of fuzz evaporating and frontman MJ’s vocals, for once, clearly audible above the noise.
MGMT - Little Dark Age (Album Review)
Thu 15 Feb 2018
MGMT’s Kids is legitimately one of the most accomplished, colourful, lavish electro-pop anthems of the past 20 years. Reinventing the fluro themes of their hero and musical forefather David Bowie, the duo earned stratospheric success with the single and their debut LP, ‘Oracular Spectacular’, in 2007.
