The National curated ATP’s festival at Camber Sands Holiday Park in England this weekend, and they closed out the festival with a two-hour set that included four new songs, one of which is this one, “Lola,” which the band opened with. This is pretty good audio and visual quality for a fan-shot video (even though this particular fan only had eyes for frontman Matt Berninger, but we can’t blame them), so even if you’re a purist, press play. It’s an upbeat but tender ballad with customarily confessional vocals from Berninger and spine-tingling instrumentals (that guitar tone!) – we can’t wait to hear a recorded version. Check it out.
The National share new song “Lola”
Two more offerings from Johnny Jewel’s SoundCloud.
From his upcoming mixtape Ferg Forever.
Each wrote a two-minute soundtrack for the film.
A 54-minute DJ mix called you and i are the same.
Hopefully it’ll include those new songs, “6 God,” “Heat of the Moment,” and “How Bout Now.”
It’s going to be A Very Very Decent Christmas
