When Lucius' Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, who worked with David Byrne on 2015's Contemporary Color shows, heard that Byrne's former band was one of our FUV Essentials, they sent along a list of the Talking Heads songs they loved best: a thank you from one New York band to another.

It's fair to say that Scott Devendorf, of The National and LNZNDRF has been living and breathing the music of the Grateful Dead for a lifetime. The bassist, who wrote about his "Five Essential Grateful Dead Songs" for FUV, worked with his bandmates from the National on the epic, five-hour, 59-track Day of the Dead covers compilation which came out in the spring of 2016.
