Cover Alert: Unknown Mortal Orchestra - (Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay (Otis Redding)

UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA COVER OTIS REDDING CLASSIC
NO SHORTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES TO SEE UPCOMING SHOWS

We have been spinning the aptly titled second LP II from Unknown Mortal Orchestra here at JamBase HQ since its release - and a number of us went to go see their recent double-bill with Foxygen at Great American Music Hall. So when we saw this morning via Stereogum that they had covered Otis Redding's 1967 classic "(Sittin' On) The Dock of The Bay" we listened immediately. The band really made it their own, which is a necessity for a song that has been covered as many times at it has. While UMO has yet to play this cover live, as far as we know, there is no shortage of upcoming shows where they might. View a massive list of their upcoming tour dates underneath a video of the cover.
