The National- “Exile Vilify”

You know your band is moving up in the world when your music is making it onto video game soundtracks. The National’s “Exile Vilify” will be featured in Portal 2, which makes me assume we’re talking about leftovers here; however, the somber attitude and lush string accompaniment are pretty enjoyable. Can’t wait to see where the band goes from here–even though y’all are still pretty burnt over my review of High Violet.

    One of my favorite songs by the National! really happy about the turnout of this one :)

    What do you mean leftovers? The song would be low quality because it’s featured in a AAA video game? I’m confused.

    Nate, b-sides and extra tracks get thrown onto soundtracks all the time. Am I the only person aware of this?
