“Fake Empire” f. Beirut (Live At Paleo Festival) (Video)

    This video is actually from last week, but it didn’t really start circulating the net till today because it’s totally worth it: It’s video of the National playing “Fake Empire” at the Paleo Festival last week, which isn’t that special (except for the song being the best) by itself. But Beirut are backing the National up here, which is what makes this can’t miss: Zach Condon and company lend backing vocals and extra horn help, turning the outro into a massive moment of catharsis. Great stuff. [Stereogum
