Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Shamir [outdoor];

UMO’s Sex & Food arrived in April like the New Zealanders’ previous three LPs: catchy, psychedelic, lo-fi. Ruban Nielson promises no decoder ring for his lyrics since he revealed the polyamorous relationship that inspired predecessor Multi-Love and found subsequent album interpretations narrow. Soul, funk, and disco thus do the talking. Las Vegas’ Shamir Bailey, 23, offers a stunningly sweet countertenor of club-pop past and indie present with March release Resolution. – Christina Garcia
