Psychedelic pop darlings UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA are the latest band to reveal music from the forthcoming epic GRATEFUL DEAD tribute sampler Day Of The Dead. We previously already heard conributions by THE NATIONAL and GRIZZLY BEAR as well as COURTNEY BARNETT or THE WAR ON DRUGS.
UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA took care of Shakedown Street and gave it their own twist. The entire sampler features 59 songs in total and is almost 6 hours long, featuring artists like REAL ESTATE, ANOHNI, BILL CALLAHAN. It arrives on May 20 via 4AD.
