How to be a successful Band old? This question also applies to The National, the American Band with the singer Matt Berninger and the two brothers pairs of Devendorf and Dessner. As a mere collection of aging white men, the five Americans no longer want to go in any event by: For her latest Album "I Am Easy to Find" they got a variety of singers into the Studio to give the hard-to melancholy Songs, a new ambiguity.
As it no longer fits, that The National fifth on the current Tour only, but equal to tenth on the stage. The rock band of yore has long since become part of the Ensemble, reinforced with a brass section, a second drummer and two singers, Hannah Georgas, and Kate Stables.

This framework provides the Samsung Hall, the formerly hard-drinking Matt Berninger enough space to pause even once. He can join in the choir as the Background singers to mask. Or he can ansingen the grandstand walls of the hall, where he suspected actually people, and only colored surfaces can discover.
And yet, Matt Berninger is in this collective structure of those fascinating appearance, the platforms on the Rock, only more rarely encountered. The presence acts, even if his baritone voice seems too brittle. Then, if the Band without him, and the luxuriously orchestrated melancholy-plays Songs and yet it looks back to Berninger. Also, if you sink it threatens the well-sound-Soundtrack – and barely has the strength to pour a glass of red wine.

It threatens the Routine, but The National play of this again and again. For example, if you play on a call of a certain Mike the Song "Sorrow". Then, when Matt Berninger calls the Songwriter of the Band, and now we have a good Song coming. Then, when he runs through the audience and the movie Fans take the phones out of the hands. Then, when, towards the end of the broken hymns of the Band – which is now shrunk almost back to core formation – Queuing, such as "Fake Empire". And "Mr. November", which is dedicated to Berninger of the presidential candidates, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.
And why in the Ensemble to hide, when you can just sing unamplified, together with the text fixed Fans? This explains Berninger of the Geeks in the final Song, "Vanderlyle Crybaby Geeks". Even if the concert circuit belongs to the band routine: It will remain in the ever-growing halls, playing on The National, very intimate moments.
