Portland's Unknown Mortal Orchestra have been frantically running back and forth across North America since April spreading the gospel from their excellent self-titled LP debut. At some point along the way they checked into Daytrotter's studio in Rock Island, IL. to record five songs, all of which are available for free download right now. You can also see from their illustrated portrait that they're pretty sleepy from all the touring. Perhaps some trucker speed from the Flying J would perk them up?
