Video: Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Ffunny Ffrends”

As you can tell from the above video (and our two most recent podcasts), Unknown Mortal Orchestra takes pride in its “Ffunny Ffrends.” The psych-rock band’s upcoming tour, however, is no laughing matter. Dozens of shows in the U.S. and Canada are on the schedule, often with multiple gigs in a single state (three in MO?!, four in TX?!!, eight in CA??!!). Ffunny or not, Unknown Mortal Orchestra must have a lot of ffrends.

The band is currently touring to support its self-titled debut album, which came out June 21, and a rotating cast of compatriots like Toro Y Moi, Times New Viking, and Man/Miracle will join them along the way. Then, beginning in October, Unknown Mortal Orchestra will play a string of headlining shows, including one at the Casbah on November 6. We will most certainly attend, and you should too.
