YOU GOTTA SEE THIS: “Strangers Are Strange” by Unknown Mortal Orchestra

February 27. 2012 | By Sean Morris

Though nowhere near as peculiar as “Thought Ballune,” Unknown Mortal Orchestra‘s “Strangers Are Strange” provides another glimpse into the lighthearted spirit of an engaging ensemble. The springy groove is reminiscent of what Beastie Boys do in between striking b-boys-to-men poses, so it’s only fitting that the video looks like the easily distracted spawn of “Sabotage.” Observe the anything but secretive observations of several brightly lit shady deals, and for Amanda Peet‘s sake, check out the rest of the album already!
