You might remember summer of 2011’s killer roster of artists who released exclusive singles via Adult Swim’s Singles Program (El-P, Mastodon, Tallest Man on Earth, etc), and this year is shaping up to be just as awesome. Unknown Mortal Orchestra are the first in a list of artists that includes acts as awesome and diverse as The Hives and Elite Gymnastics to drop an exclusive unreleased cut – in their case, it’s the lo-fi, summery weird-pop cut “I’ll Come Back 4 U.” Despite its ‘90s R&B-invoking title, it’s classic UMO: we’re digging the distortion and reverb that layers characteristic guitar noodling and frontman Ruban Nielson’s vocals. Check it out.
