Unknown Mortal Orchestra Announce Instrumental New Album 'IC-01 Hanoi'

Tuesday, 25 September 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have announced a new album.

'IC-01 Hanoi' is due out on October 26 through Jagjaguwar and was created during the recording of its predecessor, 'Sex & Food'.

Ruban Nielson, his brother Kody and longtime collaborator Jacob Portrait tracked live sessions at Phu Sa Studios in Hanoi with local musician Minh Nguyen playing Sáo Trúc, Đàn Môi, and Vietnamese percussion and Nielson's father, Chris, on flugelhorn, saxophone and keyboards. 

Head below to listen to the record's penultimate track, Hanoi 6, which clocks in at just under 10 minutes and is a meandering, eclectic composition that picks up in the latter half with the introduction of brass and a pulsing drone effect.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Mon November 19 2018 - BIRMINGHAM O2 Institute
Wed November 21 2018 - LONDON Royal Albert Hall

Baxter Dury, Étienne De Crécy, Delilah Holiday - B.E.D (Album Review)
Thu 08 Nov 2018
When Baxter Dury picks apart the ironies of the modern day on Only My Honesty Matters, in that deep, cigarette-gravelled voice, the minimalism of the instrumental beneath his rhythmic, spoken word monologue about “having a roll up” and “impotent white obvious people” listening to Florence and the Machine is almost forgivable. Almost.

It can sometimes be difficult for an artist to capture the zeitgeist. Even if they know what to say, they often struggle to find the right way to say it. Not so for Matt Healy and his 1975, who haven’t just captured the zeitgeist—they’ve wrestled it into submission, stuffed it in a cage and made it perform tricks for our amusement.
