After 20 years together as a band Umphrey’s McGee set out to record the album “it’s not us”. This would be the 11th time the band has released a full-length studio album. The first single from the upcoming album is “The Silent Type” a fresh and catchy new sound from a band that’s musical versatility is unmatched in music today.
“The Silent Type” is another rocking track from Umphrey’s reminiscent of The Cult and Talking Heads but with a modern twist and up beat groove. UM (Umphrey’s McGee) has become a band that I find myself going back to. Their electric eclectic rock sound is driven from a wide range from influences and styles but one thing is for sure this band flat out rocks!
UM thrives on improvisation and it has become the band's calling card. Whether it is a night of Improvisational jams, mash-ups or songs from there masterfully written catalog, UM always puts on a show worthy to jam to.

About the Curator - Marc James
It was a cold winters night in Boston when Marc James was born into this world atop the pool table at Cheers. From the moment he sang out his first word “Norm!” the world knew the prophecy had been fulfilled. After turning down a scholarship to The Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, Marc James attended broadcasting school to focus on the wonderful world of radio. With a degree in radio broadcasting proving to be about as valuable as a festering bucket of raccoon semen, Marc James took his talents and vast knowledge of useless information to the planet Radiotron to study under the Guru of Groove. Upon his return Marc James worked briefly for the Bartlet for America campaign before joining forces with mighty The Poop Culture Podcast, conveying his love of film, jambands, sports and all tings pop culture to the masses. It was then when he learned of his one true calling, bringing peace, love light and joy to the world, while we all wait for the impending zombie apocalypse.
