"Morning Dew" by The National
There's not a whole lot to say about this week's Music Monday feature, other than the music speaks for itself. Why? Because it's The Grateful Dead! Well ...not exactly. A huge labor of love that took several years of leg work, Day of the Dead (due out May 20th) is the National's (mostly) indie rock tribute to The Dead and will benefit Red Hot, the HIV/AIDS not-for-profit. The 59-track, box set features Dead covers by the National and friends like Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett, the War on Drugs, the Walkmen, Kurt Vile and J Mascis, Jenny Lewis, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and a ton of other notable artists.
