Unknown Mortal Orchestra Did Their Grateful Dead ‘Shakedown Street’ Cover for ‘Conan’

Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s warm embrace of a last album Multi-Love came out just over a year ago, but the kaleidoscopic band’s still grinding on its behalf, making a late-night stop on Conan last night to perform their 2016 cover of “Shakedown Street.” That track appears on the recent National-curated Grateful Dead tribute record, Day of the Dead, which also features appearances from Sharon Van Etten, Perfume Genius, and plenty of others.

Watch “Shakedown Street” on Conan below and pick up Day of the Dead if the tune so moves you.;eyJ0eXBlIjoicmVsYXRlZCIsImlkIjo5NDc4N30
