Unknown Mortal Orchestra stopped by Daytrotter's Big Orange Studios for a live, raw recording. Ruban Nielson's voice sounds grizzled and gravelly, going over many of UMO jams we've come to know and love. Tracks like "Thought Balloon" "Little Blu House" which are especially full and lush on the record, feel sparer and less nostalgic. Nielson loses his backing vocal on Won't you be high on the mountainside, but that's okay, cause you're probably singing along with him already.
