Umphrey’s McGee Miscellany

Umphrey’s McGee is playing in New York City tonight at the Nokia Theater, one of the cities’ best new venues by all accounts. I’m sure there will be plenty of jams to kick out, and if you went, we’d love for you to submit a review.

The track list for Safety in Numbers has been cracked and released. In all of it’s glory, the album has also been cracked and is readily available at your neighborhood torrent site. In reference to the Napster shutdown debacle, Metallica could not save the Umphrey’s McGees of the world. Sample one of the weirder (but wholly enjoyable) tracks on the album here, and SUPPORT THE ARTIST BY PURCHASING THIS ALBUM. Word.

Umphrey’s McGee
Safety in Numbers

  1. Believe the Lie
  2. Rocker
  3. Liquid (mp3 removed per SCI Fidelity)
  4. Words
  5. Nemo
  6. Women, Wine, and Song
  7. Intentions Clear
  8. End of the Road
  9. Passing
  10. Ocean Billy
  11. The Weight Around

Also, there’s an interesting nugget on the message board about hidden “Pay the Snucka” videos in both of their live DVD’s that they’ve released. Note to self: Put on Dark Side of the Moon and try and find the “Pay the Snucka” easter eggs.

On Live From The Lake Coast, go to the sound menu, highlight the binoural mix and click right on your remote.

On Wrapped Around Chicago, go to audio setup on disc 2, put cursor on 5.1, then press up, up, left, enter.

“Whoa dude, they totally go together!”

Have a good weekend, duders!

  1. Saw the show at Nokia last night. First concert in NYC!…and the boys didn’t disappoint. Still travelling till Monday, but maybe I’ll submit a review upon returning to the midwest. Still looking forward to Phil and Friends on Sunday!!!

  3. didn’t see them in NYC, but was there for the So. Burlington show the night before. Smokin’ show (for a n00b’s second show), but one question: do they play Crim covers often? Playing Red was like a dream come true. If they could get Lark’s Tongue in Aspic, Part 2 down, it would most likely melt my brain.

    I’m sooo glad someone is carrying the prog rock torch (taking it to the next level) and bringing it to venues that I can go to fairly easily.

  5. Yeah it’s pretty sweet that ‘Liquid’ doesn’t really sound anything they’ve done before.

    Kinda bummed that ‘Higgins’ isn’t going to be on there though…

    Don’t know if I’m gonna try and DL the album before I buy it, definitely buying it but six weeks is a while to wait man…

    Speaking of ‘prog’ if you look on the tags for most of their podcasts, they list their genre as ‘Improg’
