The Dead live on

Given his already well-publicised (if surprising) enthusiasm for them, it comes as little surprise to learn that Lee Ranaldo will feature on a forthcoming Grateful Dead tribute album, but the list of other contributors that The National have attracted to the project is pretty stellar: Stephen Malkmus, J Mascis, Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo, Daniel Rossen of Grizzly Bear, Perfume Genius, The Walkmen. Who knew there were so many unabashed Deadheads in the world of American indie rock?
