The National: White Sessions

Summer's almost here, my back is royally screwed (i can't sit, so i'm kneeling on a blanket to work at the computer right now), and good music is in the air.

The National, based in Brooklyn and originally from Cincinnati, are getting some fantastic exposure this spring opening for major label heavyweights REM and Modest Mouse. Here's a great live performance the band did a year ago for France's Inter Radio, it features, almost exclusively, tracks from the latest record, Boxer. The band has a few more dates with those two, but will continue to tour hitting every spot in Europe, check the schedule here.
