y’all, since 2012 the litmus test for whether or not a guitar part is good enough/ vocal enough/ moving enough is whether or not i can make @spudcrunchies tear up and/or cry. here is rare and raw footage of that process ... • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #cleveland #newep #newsong #comingsoon #guitarharmonies #harmony #jazzmaster #jaguar #fender #rolandjazzchorus #fendertwin #dessnerbrothers #offsetguitars #richmondva #rvamusic #rvamusicscene #richmondmusic #bandlife #homestudio #homerecording #roomwithaview #emokid #sosad

Dolphin balloons. Well it happened again, not sure how you keep churning one great album after another but you do. The National's most saddest, truest, and hopeful album yet with Beringer sharing the spotlight with amazing women vocalists: #sharonvonetten #gayleanndorsey #lisahannigan #thenational 🙏🏼 #bestalbumyet #carinbesser #mattberinger #dessnerbrothers #dolphinballoon #imeasytofind #amazingsongwriters #lyricsthatspeak

The National - Boxer (2007; US yellow vinyl reissue on Beggars Banquet). A modern classic, say the many bearded men.

If you need me, I’m trying to recover from two days of The National making me feel all the emotions (as usual) at their “There’s No Leaving New York” shows 😭 (p.s. Thanks @shannon.nico.shreibak and @fakegold___ for the National holiday adventures!) 🖤

New vinyl day !!! I finally got one of my favorite @thenational record. High Violet is an amazing piece of music, it has the subtle arrangements of the modern age of the band, and the raw aspect of the early stages. It’s heart breaking, but with a sense of humour and cynism that only Matt Berninger can sing. #thenational #highviolet #record #collector #collection #vinyl #LP #4ad #mattberninger #dessner #dessnerbrothers #devendorfbrothers #masterpiece #music #musician #composers #singer #guitars #art #artist #artlife #audiophile #whatsgonnabenext #thefamilygetsbigger

More bearded-man music. The National - Alligator (2005; 2011 US reissue). The start of the Ohio, US band's festival-indie-rock phase, released when they were still very much a "cult" act. Rich on lovely tunes like Secret Meeting, Karen, Looking For Astronauts, All The Wine and The Geese Of Beverly Road.

3 years ago the first iteration of ‚people festival‘ started in berlin, titled ‚michelberger music‘. for me the first session was a bon iver performance in this setting. funkhaus is not only a stunning venue with great acoustics. the artists created very special, intimate moments with us sitting on the floor right next to them. bon iver // 01.10.2016 / berlin #boniver #michelbergermusic #peoplefestival #berlin #dessnerbrothers #thenational #funkhaus #funkhausberlin #latergram #live #music #acoustic #unplugged #plugged #nalepastrasse #sound #iphonese

Sorry, not sorry but here’s one last photo of The National from their epic show last night. It’s the mandatory/classic photo of the Dessner brothers doing their thing during ‘Fake Empire.’ #abauerphoto #thenational #dessnerbrothers #briccelebratebrooklyn #shotoniphone

bsuyenaga93. Album of the week: The National - I Am Easy to Find. Indie rock royalt

Album of the week: The National - I Am Easy to Find. Indie rock royalty, The National, are a band whose roots run deep in the New York music scene. Originally from Ohio, the band formed in Brooklyn after members of the band graduated college and began working jobs in the Big Apple. This past week, after walking through iconic places and neighborhoods in Manhattan, the architecture and the city vibe made me realize a band like The National is the perfect soundtrack to any large city, especially New York. After first discovering their record, High Violet, during high school, I have been a huge fan of the unique sound and musicianship of the band, especially Bryan Devendorf's incredibly distinct style of drumming. A couple weeks ago, the band released an eighth record in conjunction with a short film by director Mike Mills called I Am Easy to Find and it is incredible! Continually expanding the band's pallet of sound, The National do an awesome job making albums a grandiose offering for the eardrums! The record boasts a full orchestra with strings arranged by guitarist Bryce Dessner, that add another layer of epicness to record along with some brass horns that add a touch of class. Piano is also an instrument that helps drive in many of the tunes on the record contributing a ton to dynamics. Electronic synths and beats also are incorporated into the band's sound that are reminiscent of the band's previous release, Sleep Well Beast. Another awesome aspect the record features is guest appearances by female vocalists like Sharon Van Etten and Lisa Hannigan as well as the Brooklyn Youth Chorus that serve as an eloquent balance to Matt Berninger's baritone vocals! Not forgetting the incredible guitar work by the Dessner brothers and tight rhythm section by bassist Scott Devendorf and his brother, the awesome drummer mentioned earlier, this record is definitely a favorite in the band's discography! Favorite tunes include You Had Your Soul With You, Quiet Light, Roman Holiday, The Pull of You, Where Is Her Head, and Rylan. So good!! #TheNational #IAmEasyToFind #IndieRock #IndieMusic #4AD #Rylan #RomanHoliday #MattBerninger #MikeMills #DessnerBrothers #AlbumReview
