The National: White Sessions 2007

Here's The National's White Session for France Inter radio on May 7th 2007. White Sessions are the same as Black Sessions, but without an audience. These are essential for all National fans and 'must hear' stuff for those of you who haven't snapped up any remaining tickets for the band's tour dates.

Read Sixeyes most recent interview with band singer and lyricist, Matt Berninger.

Check tour dates here.

BUY Boxer and/or Alligator

UPDATE: Sixeyes has begun to re-post the entire White Session 2007 by the band. The songs will be doled out two at a time.

    Would you please, please, please repost those links? The National is a really fantastic band, and after being introduced to them on this website, I went out and purchased all the music I could find of theirs. I'd love to hear this as well though.
