Here’s the first look at Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s forthcoming LP on Jagjaguwar, a glimmering rock track called “Swim And Sweep (Like A Shark).” It symbolizes a logical progression for the group, as the single showcases cleaner textures that prop up singer Ruban Nielson’s songwriting a little bit more.
