New: Unknown Mortal Orchestra - "So Good At Being In Trouble"

Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Here's a half R&B pop/half psychedelic rock song set to appear on Unknown Mortal Orchestra's second album, cleverly titled ll. The smooth downtempo number finds frontman Ruban Nielson's repeatedly crooning "she was so good at being in trouble" for the choruses and sticking to the same lamenting verses twice through, "now that you're gone its been a long, lonely time/its a long sad lonely time". The Portland act know what they're doing though, the reiterations prove more than appropriate for such a genre-bending ballad with melancholy subject matter.

ll is out February 5th through Jagjaguwar.
