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.
