Unknown Mortal Orchestra – “Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays”
Unknown Mortal Orchesta’s new album Sex & Food has already gifted us two distinct, fascinating singles: the swaggering fuzz-rocker “American Guilt” and the slow-building psych-funk gem “Not In Love We’re Just High.” Today Ruban Nielson shares a third preview of the album, one that hews closer to the second advance song’s hallucinogenic soft-rock palette (the sound we’ve come to most closely associate with UMO, in other words). It’s called “Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays,” and its lightweight disco-funk sweep might just lift you off the ground.
The song emerged in roundabout fashion: Fans who pre-ordered Sex & Food recently received a pamphlet called “Age Of Paranoia” in the mail this week:

The pamphlet included a link to EveryoneActsCrazyNowadays.com, which went live with the song premiere last night. And now you can hear “Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays” in all its glory below.
