EDITORS’ NOTES

An epic tribute to the Grateful Dead from the most fertile minds in independent music, the five-and-a-half-hour Day of the Dead glows with a reverence few bands ever get. From the expected (Kurt Vile’s “Box of Rain” or the War on Drugs’ “Touch of Grey”) to the radically reimagined (Senegalese legends Orchestra Baobab’s Afro-Cuban spin on “Franklin’s Tower,” ANOHNI and yMusic’s “Black Peter”), it’s the sound of a younger generation moving forward by embracing what came before—lovingly produced by the National’s Bryce and Aaron Dessner.

Incredible Record Everyone Will Own

Own this record:

Jim James morphs into Jerry - your head will melt and your soul ushered into the glory days of the Grateful Dead.

Too Lay Me Down is instant sedation.

The various artists took their time on this ultimate tribute album. The small taste upfront (6 or so tracks) is enough to wet my appetite for the greatness to come on May 20th.

It's for Charity too. This entire "project" is incredible actually. I hope 99% of the proceeds make it to the charity 🤑 This is going to raise an UNREAL amount of money 💰💰💰
