Purple just shared Samantha Casolari's kaleidoscopic throwback to last February's residency with L.A. Dance Project — a dreamland look at the Theatre and the show, with National guitarist Bryce Dessner’s score for choreographer Justin Peck’s “Murder Ballads” soundtracking.
The National - “Graceless” - BBC Radio Music 6 Festival 2014
"A person with grace is somebody who’s socially graceful or is a classy person, but sometimes you just feel the opposite of that, and you just feel like a jerk and a loser and a weirdo. And, yeah, so, ‘I don’t have the sunny side to face this’ is sort of a self-mocking wink, I guess. Because you would never describe, I think, most of our music as sunny." — Matt Berninger (x)
