Running exactly one hour long, the latest from Unknown Mortal Orchestra is a warming reclamation of songwriter Ruban Nielson’s disparate locational and familial influences. Taking in the West Coast Rock influences he absorbed as a child and situating them in the SoCal he now calls home while also drawing on the Hapa-haole music of Hawai’i that ties in to his parents music careers, ‘V’ is cohesive and well mannered throughout. ‘The Beach’ is a blissfully soft, wave-like celebration that’s part Disco, part Psych, in its ‘70s stylings. Elsewhere, ‘That Life’ is a flat out rocker and the reverb soaked ‘Keaukaha’ is a meditative excursion that segues perfectly into the Hapa-haole of ‘I Killed Captain Cook’. Diverse and deep, ‘V’ maintains a sense of momentum and open-hearted optimism that is contagious.
