Adam here with my DJ pick of the week. Earlier this year, the National’s Aaron Dessner and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon teamed up to release their 10-track collaborative debut as Big Red Machine. Being a fan of both artists, I’ve been giddy about this record since day one. Featuring Vernon’s trademark auto-tuned vocals, “Forest Green” was quickly a standout on the record for me.
“We took the music to a certain point, and then we reached out and sent it far and wide, inviting friends to contribute any and all ideas. We’ve viewed the record and the process from a community standpoint,” Dessner stated in a press release. “This feels like something new—the process felt different and the outcome felt different.”
Listen to “Forest Green” below and let us know what you think!
