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.
