Pitchfork Presents: The National

So, has everyone heard The National's new album, High Violet? I'd recommend doing so; it's a good album. What's more, some nice videos were shot of The National performing a few of the new tracks at an abandoned castle in New York. The videos are quite good, and the songs are too. You can check out all three songs at Pitchfork. My personal favorite of the three is "Anyone's Ghost", featured below.

Also, The National recently performed a benefit concert for the Red Hot Organization, filmed by Chris Hegedus and DA Pennebaker. Here's the performance of "Slow Show", from their 2007 album Boxer.
