Return To the Moon

Matt Berninger (lead singer of The National).
Brent Knopf (founding member of Ramona Falls and Menomena), Andy Stack (of Wye Oak) and Matt Sheehy (of Lost Lander).

I submitted it a while back... it was rejected immediately.
I love the quirky lyrics and the music of this song!

Yes, much more up-tempo, and it has actual "singing" on it.  Nice to know they can deviate from their schtick.

I can't listen to these political drones anymore.   They put me in a bad mood.

I agree, it does sound a bit like something like a today's version of Republic Tigers, but the keyboards, often overshadowed, are awesome; Charlatans UK and Pink Floyd come to mind...and the guitar is really pretty rippin' and I gotta say I love it. They're growing!

I thought this might be a new Republic Tigers track... I need to look closer at The National

By "this thing", do you mean he uses it in places other than the third beat of the bar? :O

I always thought that they were lazy and willing to call mumbly and lukewarm okay; this seems to indicate that they are more creative...

I just... haunting. I love The National, but this raises the bar. Thanks, Bill. Wouldn't have noticed it without your curation.

I can't see why this band bothers with making new releases..... just repackage the old ones, no one will be able to tell the difference.

I think I like the underlying message of this track, like a lot of The National, good lyrics good song, but for me I'm not a huge fan of the vocals or instrumentation.  I'm somewhere between "MEH" and "AWESOME" - call it a 7 for now.

LONG LIVE RP!
