The National | "So Far Around The Bend" (Video)

If you haven't picked up the charity compilation Dark Was the Nightyet, then please do so now. Not only is the album jam packed with great songs but by purchasing the album you are helping to support a great cause. Speaking of great songs, here is a video featuring one of my favorite songs from Dark Was The Night by The National entitled "So Far Around The Bend". Brothers Bryce and Aaron Dessner, of The National, not only lent this song to the album but also helped co-produce it as well. You can expect to see more videos like the one above featuring live performances from other artists who performed on Dark Was The Night.

In related news, if you happen to be in NYC on Sunday, May 3rd, you can see Dark Was The Night Live at Radio City Music Hall. The concert will feature several of the artists that contributed to the compilation including Dave Sitek, Dirty Projectors, Feist, My Brightest Diamond, The National, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and more. Should be fantastic show.
