day of the dead

Quello che sembra essere il tributo più vasto e interessante di sempre ai Grateful Dead sembra essere all’orizzonte, ed è tutto merito dei National. È stata infatti proprio la band americana a curare la creazione di Day of the Dead, un box set contenente 59 canzoni con una lista di collaboratori da far paura che verrà pubblicato il 20 maggio da 4AD. Quella sopra è la copertina.

Lista di collaboratori, dicevamo: pronti? Via. Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett, ANOHNI, The War on Drugs, Justin Vernon, Bill Callahan, The Walkmen, Tim Hecker, Kurt Vile, J Mascis, Tunde Adebimpe dei TV on the Radio, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, The Tallest Man On Earth, Real Estate, Perfume Genius e Sharon Van Etten, Fucked Up, Jim James dei My Morning Jacket, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, membri dei Grizzly Bear, Terry Riley e suo figlio Gyan, Stephen Malkmus dei Pavement, Lee Ranaldo dei Sonic Youth, Ira Kaplan dei Yo La Tengo, Cass McCombs, Richard Reed Parry degli Arcade Fire, Garth Hudson dei The Band e molti altri. Oltre, ovviamente, ai National stessi.

Tutti i profitti andranno a Red Hot, un’associazione non-profit per la lotta all’AIDS e all’HIV. Qua sotto trovate la tracklist completa del box set e, in fondo, un video dal vivo dei Dead.
