“If Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s second album II is a wholly solid (if a bit uneven) record, last night’s show reflected that sentiment. Juxtaposed against the eat-some-acid energy of Foxygen, UMO’s set, played to a background of glowing red candles, lacked a certain vitality. That may have been due to the sound issues they appeared to be having, or it may be that (last night at least) Ruban Nielson seemed to be a much more impassioned guitar player than vocalist. But perhaps that’s because it would be hard for anything to outshine his guitar playing: the guy is technically brilliant.” [Village Voice]
