We actually think it makes great sense that Unknown Mortal Orchestra would choose Otis Redding’s “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” to cover during their BBC 6 Music live session – the band deliver their best material when they smartly update the structures of classic soul and R&B with a little distorted, psychedelic energy. Dudes also know how to perfectly summon a nostalgic, sun-crisped feeling that we think would definitely make Otis proud, and that whistled line at the end is totally charming. Check it out.
