During our recent chat with Ruban "Unknown Mortal Orchestra" Nielson he revealed that the band would be heading to Australia sometime later in the year. Well that lil' slice of Paradise/Great News has now been confirmed, with the Kiwi-led Portlanders announced as part of the latest wave of artists on the (slow-dripped) Falls Festival line-up...
