There is more Big Red Machine music in the world.

Two new tracks from the duo have been released as part of a wider mixtape from the ever-present PEOPLE collective.

Deep Green brings experimental electronic textures to the forefront, an avenue both musicians have taken in their main bands Bon Iver and the National, with the addition of characteristic sparse guitar lines from Dessner. I Won’t Run From It however sees both musicians hark back to their earlier, more folk-infused styles.

PEOPLE, the new online music platform, was first announced back in June, and has since grown to encompass a huge number of collaborators. Its first mixtape sees contributions from Lisa Hannigan, Invisible Boy, Mina Tindle and more. Find the full list of collaborators on the project here.

PEOPLE are additionally putting on a festival at Berlin’s Funkhaus on August 18-19, which sees over 160 artists performing across eight stages,with no sponsors or brands, just music.

Listen to the mixtape below.

td#right {display:none !important;} A new year brings with it the chance to look ahead after a few weeks of looking back over our shoulders. In musical terms, we can start to think about the artists who’ll capture our attention on summer festival stages, or during opening slots for existing favourites. We can ponder the singles that’ll leap from radio waves or playlists into the fabric of our day-to-day. Here we’ve assembled 10 artists we believe will make 2019 one to remember—some of them are about to release debut records, others are starting to pound the pavement in support of music that deserve time to shine.

But then we also have bands like Puppy, who are able to cast that whole argument in the comic light it often deserves.
