Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and The National’s Aaron Dessner have released two more Big Red Machine songs as part of a mixtape showcasing their new collaborative music platform, People.
People Mixtape 1 features Vernon and Dessner in several other permutations, collaborating with the likes of Kristin Anna Valtysdottir (Múm), Ryan Olson (Gayngs) and Mouse On Mars, as well as new music from Mina Tindle and Beat Detectives.
There is also an intriguing team-up between Dessner, Lisa Hannigan and playwright Enda Walsh, plus a track from Aaron and Bryce Dessner’s acoustic folk project Red Bird Hollow.
