As a follow up to The London Session, the envelope pushing continues with the November 11th release of ZONKEY. Umphrey’s McGee has been arranging and performing original mashups live for over eight years. It was only a matter of when, not if, some of those innovative concoctions would find their way into a studio. 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-plus 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.
The original Umphrey’s McGee played a mix of originals and cover songs, waiting just eight months to release their debut album, the cheekily titled Greatest Hits Volume III. Their initial “proper” recording, Local Band Does OK, came out in 2002, followed shortly afterward by an appearance at the first-ever Bonnaroo in Tennessee, selling more albums than any other band on the bill. The 2007 double album, Live at the Murat, earned a four-star review in Rolling Stone and a Jammy for Best Live Album.
Drawing from an array of inspirations including jam music, electronic production, film scores, and a bit of metal, Space Bacon seeks to challenge conventions and pave the way in the modern era of improvisational music. Sound aside, the group follows in the footsteps of its jam band predecessors, cultivating a rabid cult-like fanbase of Baconators who can be seen following the band at every show. Also in true jam band fashion, nearly all of the band’s live shows are documented and soundboards are released through their Bandcamp page.
Space Bacon dropped their studio debut Nodes EP in August of 2016, available on Spotify, iTunes and wherever music is sold online. Be sure to keep an eye out for Space Bacon; this is only their beginning.
Check out Nodes EP and Space Beach available for stream and download via Bandcamp; and see below for what the press has to say.
"On the rise Brooklyn-based jammers Space Bacon continue to break boundaries with their funky electronica fusion... Get ready for a cosmic journey of epic proportions with Space Bacon and their new EP." - Live For Live Music
"These guys are on a 'meteoric' rise, plain and simple. With performances at Disc Jam, The Hall at MP, and a big one coming up at Mazzstock, Space Bacon will come up in conversation if you know anything about music." - Sound Fix
"New York City has always been a breeding place for music. One generation to the next; from rock n' roll to hip hop, and jazz to electronic - NYC is a platform for musical evolution, some artists fail and others succeed. Space Bacon is a band that will most definitely succeed." - The Passion Collective
