Watching The National’s set on the Lollapalooza live stream over the weekend and this four-song session on The Interface is all I can do to keep from counting down the days to the band’s two-stop return to Arizona in October.
I, for one, will never tire of the end-of-the-show climax that Mr. November has become or the red-faced, middle-of-the-crowd freakout of Abel. Mostly, I’m looking forward to seeing the new songs performed in person for the first time, especially England, my favorite off High Violet.
The band performed England (below), along with Afraid of Everyone, Lemonworld and Terrible Love for The Interface. Be sure to watch the interview, in which you will discover the band’s rooting interest in baseball.
