Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The formerly anonymous UMO turned out to be the ingenious studio invention of Ruban Nielson, who now leads a trio. The Portlandia-based New Zealander's distinctive finger-style manner with an electric guitar elevates his androgynous voice and downbeat pop songs nearly into XTC territory, although the Flying Nun stable, which he joined as a former member of the Mint Chicks, is certainly a bigger influence.
