Unknown Mortal Orchestra Recruit Lindstrom for House Remix

We haven't been shy about our love for Portland-via-New Zealand psych-pop trio Unknown Mortal Orchestra. The awards at South by Southwest. The monkey obsession and admiration from Courtney Love and Questlove.

Now they've upped themselves again, enlisting Norwegian disco-house producer Hans-Peter Lindstrom to remix their 1960s throwback pop track "Swim and Slip (Like a Shark)".

Lindstrom molds and reworks the track into a four-on-the-four, synth-heavy house song; the original version virtually unrecognizable save for frontman Ruban Nielson's vocals. It's a perfect way to start a dreary Monday back at the office.
