The National: An Awesomeometer Super Post

The National is officially this blogger's Favorite Band in the Whole World at the Moment, and their stellar 12-track album, Boxer has retained the title of The NeffList's Top Album of 2007 since its release earlier this spring. They played a kick-assed set at Dallas' Granada Theater Friday, September 14, 2007, and i was fortunate enough to be one of the many super-stoked fans in attendance. See my flickr page for tons of pics from that memorable performance.
They recently played "Fake Empire" on Late Night With David Letterman, and will play another track from Boxer, "Apartment Story" on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson on Wednesday Sept. 26. So plan on staying up late or look for it on the YouTube the next day.
In June, The National was featured on NPR's Live Concert Series. Listen to their performance from DC's 9:30 Club here.
Filmaker Vincent Moon is completing a documentary featuring The National as they recorded Boxer last year. The film is titled A Skin, A Night. Check out Vincent's incredible footage of intimate performances of each song from Boxer here. Wow.
For all of you fans of The National who already have all of their CD's, but are left wanting more, i have scoured the darkest corners of the interwebs and uploaded all of the non-album tracks i could find. And you're very welcome. All files are zipped and uploaded to Mediafire for your convenience. You can find the tracklists for each file in the comments section of this post. Vive le National!!

thanks for these; i don't know if it's just me waxing sentimental or what ... but something about the live version of "slow show" reminds me of old lloyd cole and the commmotions stuff ...

great song writing.

keep it up mang!

oh god. i listened to all of these today.

again, great stuff.

i found myself googling 'gira,' 'The Nationals' ...

same sort of "i'm just chillin in the living room while singing this fine song" sort of tone as angels of light and the oh so demure gira front man.

sorry to keep drawing comparisons. but seriously ... these things just pop into one's head.
