Umphrey's McGee - Zonkey

From Umphrey’s McGee

“Umphrey’s McGee has been arranging and performing original mashups live for over eight years. It was only a matter of when, not if, these innovative concoctions would find their way into a studio. And that “when” has arrived.”

“Today, UM is pleased to announce ZONKEY, an album of 12 unique mashups, conceived and arranged by the band. ZONKEY is as seamless as it bizarre, playful as it is razor sharp. Bits and pieces of classic songs are culled from 40+ years of popular music from 70s Reggae to 80s Pop to 90s Metal and everywhere in between. From Radiohead mashed with Beck, The Weeknd with Fleetwood Mac, Talking Heads with Bob Marley, Metallica with Gorillaz . . . nothing is off limits.”

““ZONKEY clearly pays homage to some of our favorite artists and songs. While we’ve tried to reproduce the spirit of the original compositions and recordings, we’ve also tried to have some fun with the structure as we’ve often combined seemingly dissimilar musical elements to create a new vibe altogether,” notes keyboardist Joel Cummins.”
