When Unknown Mortal Orchestra emerged in 2010, the band’s name suited them perfectly. Bloggers struggled to put the pieces together and figure out just who Unknown Mortal Orchestra was. It has since been revealed that Ruban Nielson, formerly of the Mint Chicks, is the man behind this band. So far this year, the three-piece band has released II (their second full-length album), was named one of Fuse’s 30 Must-See Acts at SXSW 2013, and have been touring throughout the world with more shows to follow.
