  • The National: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

    18:18

    The first thing you might notice about this video is the change in surroundings: NPR recently moved to a new building, and though we worked to make the Tiny Desk as visually similar as possible to the old space — a process we recently documented with the help of OK Go — the ceilings are higher, the square footage more generous and the surfaces lavishly unsullied. The visuals will surely evolve in the months and years to come, as more tchotchkes and coffee stains accumulate on, around and behind Bob Boilen's desk.

    In the days leading up to this hotly anticipated performance by The National — recorded at the obscenely early time (for touring bands anyway) of 10:30 in the morning — we'd gotten word that the group would strip its sound way down for the occasion, sticking to two acoustic guitars and a bit of hand percussion. What we got instead was a fully fleshed-out septet, complete with horns and piano; the band showed up at 9:30 to rehearse and sound-check.

    Though singer Matt Berninger had barely rested his voice from a show in the area the night before, The National dutifully performed gorgeous acoustic renditions of four tracks from its fine new album, Trouble Will Find Me. Its members even treated the hundreds of worshipful gawkers to Building 2.0's first-ever Tiny Desk encore, in response to a roar of applause that could be heard in the far reaches of the newsroom downstairs. Here's to many more.

    You just walked away

    What could I say

    How close am I to losing you

    Tonight you just close your eyes
    and I just watch you
    slip away

    How close am I to losing you

    Hey, are you awake
    Yeah I'm right here
    Well can I ask you about today

    How close am I to losing you

  • The National - Full performance

    1:14:43

    #TheNational painted the summer sky with #live versions of songs from their latest album, I Am Easy To Find. Their instruments sprawled across the stage and blue-and-white tapestries fluttered among horn players, drums, and an upright piano. Matt Berninger was joined onstage by two singers who filled in for the many guest vocals on I Am Easy To Find: Zoe Randell (of the Australian band Luluc) and Mina Tindel (who appears on the album's track Oblivions).

    You guys have one of the best radio stations anywhere, Berninger told the audience. The crowd sang along to favorites like Bloodbuzz Ohio and Fake Empire as Aaron and Bryce Dessner delivered delivering wailing guitar solos and softly plunked piano parts.

    Berninger hopped off the stage at multiple points in the night to wade through the crowd. With just minutes left in the #concert, the National launched from Mr. November into Terrible Love while Berninger snaked through the audience, hair ruffled and forehead-to-forehead with fans.

    Set List:
    You Had Your Soul With You

  • The National - Hard To Find

    4:14

    Lost video for Hard To Find surfaces. Director Michael Brown discovers lost underwater footage on old hard drive.

    “This video has been buried away for 6 years and I can’t think of a better time than now to share it with the world and add a tiny touch of beauty to what is already lost. In Feb. of 2014 we were half-way through the ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ touring cycle. After finishing a run of great shows in Australia, we had one day-off before the last show on the run, a west coast performance in Perth. We all decided as one big touring-family that we wanted to rent a boat and make a journey to see a series of islands off the coast that are protected nature reserves. As we anchored in one of the bays, we all noticed there was a fearless group of seals swimming around the boat. Brandon and Matt decided to jump in first and to the surprise of us all, the seals started swimming alongside them and playing with us. At the time I always kept a camera with me to add video content to our show if a good opportunity arose. So I jumped in after them and caught this beautifully humanizing moment of Matt swimming with the seals. A memory that reminds me just how lucky we are to be able to share things like this with one another.” - Michael Brown

  • The National - Never Tear Us Apart

  • The National - I Need My Girl

    3:56

    The National, formed in Ohio and cultivated in New York City, have been one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the last decade. Touring worldwide and releasing album after album of challenging, intricate music, they have steadily risen to become among the most prominent voices in modern rock. In Austin as one of the top featured acts at ACL Festival 2013, they were kind enough to stop at the Gibson Texas Showroom and perform a few key tracks from their fine new record Trouble Will Find Me, including I Need My Girl.

    Matt introduced I Need My Girl as a depressing love song before the Dessner brothers began playing it on two Gibson J-45 acoustic guitars.

    There's no saving anything
    Now we're swallowing the shine of the sun
    There's no saving anything
    How we swallow the sun
    But I won't be no runaway
    'Cause I won't run
    No, I won't be no runaway
    What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
    We've got another thing coming undone
    And it's taking us over
    We don't bleed when we don't fight
    Go ahead, go ahead, throw your arms in the air tonight
    We don't bleed when we don't fight
    Go ahead, go ahead, lose our shirts in the fire tonight
    What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
    We got another thing coming undone
    But I won't be no runaway
    'Cause I won't run
    No, I won't be no runaway
    'Cause I won't run
    No, I won't be no runaway
    What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
    We've got another thing coming undone
    And it's taking us over
    We don't bleed when we don't fight
    Go ahead, go ahead, throw your arms in the air tonight
    We don't bleed when we don't fight
    Go ahead, go ahead, lose our shirts in the fire tonight
    But what makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
    We got another thing coming undone
    We got another thing coming undone
    And it's taking forever
    I'll go braving everything
    With you swallowing the shine of the sun
    I'll go braving everything
    Through the shine of the sun
    But I won't be no runaway
    'Cause I won't run
    No, I won't be no runaway
    'Cause I won't run
    No, I won't be no runaway
    What makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?
    We've got another thing coming undone
    And it's taking us over
    We don't bleed when we don't fight
    Go ahead, go ahead, throw your arms in the air tonight
    We don't bleed when we don't fight
    Go ahead, go ahead, lose our shirts in the fire tonight
    But what makes you think I'm enjoying being led to the flood?

  • Light Years - The National

    11:50

    Instagram: denali_marks

    *Notes*
    *When I refer to the chorus, the beginning of it is when Matt Berninger begins to sing Oh the glory of it all was lost on me, even tough you can consider it a pre-chorus or a lift.
    *There are some variations in the way Dessner plays the right hand through the song, they're not very significant and the live versions he plays it differently a lot too. This is just the barebones skeleton version of the song, feel free to experiment.
    *On that same note I recognise that some of the chords are inversions in the studio version; I'm not the most highly trained pianist (as you can obviously tell) so I just stuck to the basic chord structure. I'd make the recommendation that if you want to use inverted chords i'd follow this pattern - (F# - A - E(First inversion) - B(Second inversion)) - the B chord he plays hits the lower F# note.

    3:45

    Lyrics:
    I think this place is full of spies
    I think they're onto me
    Didn't anybody, didn't anybody tell you
    Didn't anybody tell you how to gracefully disappear in a room
    I know you put in the hours to keep me in sunglasses, I know

    And so and now I'm sorry I missed you
    I had a secret meeting in the basement of my brain
    It went the dull and wicked ordinary way
    It went the dull and wicked ordinary way
    And now I'm sorry I missed you
    I had a secret meeting in the basement of my brain

    I think this place is full of spies
    I think I'm ruined
    Didn't anybody, didn't anybody tell you
    Didn't anybody tell you, this river's full of lost sharks
    I know you put in the hours to keep me in sunglasses, I know

    And so and now I'm sorry I missed you
    I had a secret meeting in the basement of my brain
    It went the dull and wicked ordinary way
    It went the dull and wicked ordinary way

    And now I'm sorry I missed you
    I had a secret meeting in the basement of my brain
    And now I'm sorry I missed you
    I had a secret meeting in the basement of my brain
    It went the dull and wicked ordinary way
