Tweener J: Kevin Browning of Umphrey’s McGee

Rob and Seth have a phone chat with one of Umphrey’s McGee’s managers, Kevin Browning. They first revel in the joy that is the band’s new vape pens, Night Nurse and Day Nurse. Kevin talks about how this collaboration between the band and MedPharm came to be, and some of the specifics about each. They then dive into the 15th Anniversary “redux” release of the band’s pivotal record, Anchor Drops. Kevin talks about the decision-making process behind the re-release, the difference between the remix and the remaster and even shares some stories related to the songs. The hosts also discuss Jefferson Waful, who is leaving his position as lighting designer, but Browning speaks of his hope that Jefferson will still offer his video brilliance to the band, as evidenced by the “redux” videos he has this year created for every Anchor Drops song. The folks also discuss Umphrey’s McGee’s future, including their adventurous destination show in Iceland.
