Tag: The National
I stay down with my demons. Trouble Will Find Me is due May 21 via 4AD.
I don’t watch/read Game of Thrones, and that’s my fault. This is some sort of anthem referenced in the books that will appear on the show’s season 2 soundtrack, and it’s The National. No spoilers.
Hello and welcome to my year-end list. I started my Albums of the Year post about 9 blogmonths (2 weeks) ago and realized very quickly that the majority of my favorite music from this year wasn’t on there. For me, 2011 was a big year for songs. Albums, singles, EPs, mixtapes, remixes, remix albums, free [...]

This is not a new song, but it is a free song and it is The National. “About Today” comes from the band’s 2004 EP, Cherry Tree, but the free download is thanks to its appearance (EDIT: miraculously epic, Oscar ready appearance) in the new film, Warrior. About Today by The National
The National and video game Portal 2 announced the winner of their Music Video Contest (they also announced the 1.00000000001 place video) for the soundtrack’s “Exile Vilify.” Above, a sock puppet sings The National in the countryside.. in slow motion. The clear winner, in my opinion.
Some behind the scenes clips of Win Win, The National’s “Think You Can Wait”, performance shots with Sharon Van Etten and a projector: Charming Things. Win Win soundtrack is out now.
‘The National‘ tag on a track basically serves as a guarantee for devastatingly beautiful music, right? “Think You Can Wait” is no exception. The song will appear on the upcoming soundtrack for Thomas McCarthy’s new film, Win Win, and is streaming below in all its devastating beauty via SKOA.
The video for The National’s “Conversation 16″ (a highlight among highlights on 2010′s Top 5 album, High Violet) is a love story starring Kristen Schaal as the president of the US, John Slattery as a secret service agent, and James Urbaniak as the president of Russia. Huh? Huh. Pretty goofy for such a vastly deep, [...]

The only way to get this year’s playlist up later than I did last year was to do it on NYE. Luckily, I kept a running list through-out 2010 that ended up with about 100 songs on it (too many!), and had to ax a lot of favorites. So, if the below 60 song playlist [...]
