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
Thu November 22 2018 - BRIGHTON Concorde 2

It’s one year since we said we’d see Tom Petty somewhere along the road, and it’s still a bitter one to swallow. We’ve had time to accept that there’s a full stop to his story, and to understand our relationship with his music in a new context, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

We Were Promised Jetpacks - The More I Sleep The Less I Dream (Album Review)
Thu 27 Sep 2018
Album four from Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks is, in their own words, about going back to basics. Since 2014’s ‘Unravelling’ they’ve changed management and label, both potential pitfalls, while recording was undertaken in the US with producer Jonathan Low. Running alongside these changes on ‘The More I Sleep The Less I Dream’ is the switch back to their original four man configuration and something approximating the style of their early releases.

Alt-J - Reduxer (Album Review)
Mon 01 Oct 2018
Remix albums don’t always work. The best examples refresh and reveal elements of the original songs, giving them new life and often broadening their appeal. When they fail, it is often because the tracks lack the integrity and consistency of the source material.
