Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "So Good at Being in Trouble"
Another preview track from Unknown Mortal Orchestra's upcoming second album (cleverly titled II) hit the webs this morning, and it's a keeper. "So Good at Being in Trouble," and in fact a lot of II, reminds me a lot of "Family Affair"-era Sly and the Family Stone, in that it's soulful and funky despite sounding like all the air's been sucked out of it. UMO sounds a lot warmer and clear-headed than Sly ever did, of course, and this track displays a humanity and love-sick quality that isn't always apparent on UMO's other, more lightheaded tracks. II comes out on February 5, but UMO won't play a hometown Portland show until April 5, so sit tight.
