'Sleep Well Beast' finds The National at their most depressing, and makes some of the most radical changes to their post-'Alligator' sound, introducing synths, electronic drums, guitar solos, and more.
The 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood vinyl series features contributions from Bjork, St. Vincent, Sleater-Kinney, Sharon Van Etten, members of The National, and Bon Iver, among others, with proceeds going to Planned Parenthood.
Watch Matt Berninger of The National perform "The Rains of Castamere" at the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience. Serj Tankian of System of a Down has performed the same song at a previous date in the GoT live tour.
Steve Kimock, who's been in a number of Dead-related bands including Bob Weir's Kingfish and RatDog, and Jon Shaw are on the tour in Aaron Dessner's place. Check out setlists from the tour so far, plus videos of Matt Berninger joining in LA for four Grateful Dead songs.
