UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA (NZ/US)
Saturday 06.07.13 - 21:00 - Pavilion
The poppy acid rock songs of Ruban Nielson made the world want a piece of him, before his trippy sugar cubes were even ready for consumption.
This year’s follow-up album, II, has just arrived. It carries on with flickering sunshine, laid-back nonchalance and heartwarming melodies.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra gazes reverently at late The Beatles and early Pink Floyd, and the acid trip also has a slack, home-made vibe reminiscent of a young Beck.
Label: Jagjaguwar / Cosmos
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
