Single Serving: The National – Acoustic Session for SiriusXMU

Earlier this year the National stopped by and performed a short acoustic performance for SiriusXMU.  They played four tracks from High Violet with acoustic guitars, pianos, and violins.  The tunes radiated a whole new energy in this incarnation.  “Anyone’s Ghost” shines with a clammy, nimbleness through a melody constructed solely from acoustic guitar and violin.  “Conversation 16” becomes a swayingly haunted piano ballad.  Definitely a great , and highly recommend, addition to your library if you are already a fan on the National.
