In case you haven’t heard about the upcoming Day of the Dead tribute to The Grateful Dead, prepare to become more hype than human. Day of the Dead is a three disk tribute curated by none other than The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, filled to the brim with act from across all sphere honoring the iconic stoner rock powerhouse. There’s Angel Olsen on ‘Attics of my Life’, Local Natives on ‘Stella Blue’, Real Estate with ‘Here Comes Sunshine’, Fucked Up doing ‘Cream Puff War’, there’s just so many. The full albums are released on May 20th, but five tracks have been shared with the public beforehand. And while we at Whatsound do love The War On Drugs, we decided to link to the best of the best, Courtney Barnett, doing the cover she was born to play in ‘New Speedway Boogie’.
