Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "I'll Come Back 4 U"

Every summer, the people at Adult Swim give us a free song a week through their Adult Swim Singles Series, showing a hit rate and a level of taste that’s frankly staggering for a cross-promotional vanity project. This summer, they’ll be giving us tracks from people like Wavves, Wye Oak, and the Field. And today, we get the first song of the series, from New Zealand-via-Portland psych-poppers Unknown Mortal Orchestra. It’s a surprisingly funky piece of homemade lo-fi back-yard R&B. Down the track below.

More info on the Singles Series can be found at the Adult Swim site.

  1. Frankly staggering? Man adult swim has been on their shit for years when it comes to music. I heard J Dilla, Grizzly Bear, Battles, Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi, Teebs, Four Tet, Burial, DOOM, Madlib, and a ton of other great artists thanks to adult swim’s bump music. Heck they had Schooly D narrate the first season of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and used Pulp’s “Like a Friend” for the Venture Bros season finale. Not to mention Brendan Small’s contributions (Dethklok, Home Movies’ rock opera based on The Metamorphosis).

    Sorry lol, I’m a bit of an adult swim fanboy.
