One of the favorite records of 2011 for many of us @ the HASSLE was the self titled debut from mysterious Northwesters UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA. Alien funkiness wed to some very hard to resist hooks in song after song. We were in paradise. And tonight the people who make such simply perfect pop songs bring their equipment and falsetto to Cambridge to spread it around @ TT The Bear’s. If a tuesday dance party is on your mind then you could do no better. We will be there, there is no doubt. What a chance to sing along. DOLDRUMS’ weirdling electronic pop and DIIV(a Beach Fossil’s side project)’s underground washed out jangle sounds complete the line up in Central Sq. this evening.
