Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s contribution to the National’s triple-disc monster of a Grateful Dead tribute compilation, Day Of The Dead, was a cover of “Shakedown Street.” The original was already a funky tune, but UMO threw in some warped psychedelia for one of the most ambitious covers in the entire collection. Today, they’ve given their reworking the visual treatment. The Business Company-directed clip is a colorful mix of live action and animated accents with quirky costumes and trippy lo-fi effects. Watch.
Day Of The Dead is out now.
