National - The Virginia EP

UPC: 607618026011
Availability: IN STOCK

Originally released in 2008 as the companion CD to their A Skin, A Night DVD, The Virginia EP is available now for the first time on vinyl.

Among the highlights of demos and B-sides is "You’ve Done It Again, Virginia,” featuring Sufjan Stevens, it broods like their best songs do, but with banjo and subdued horns adding warm textures. A Daytrotter version of “Lucky You” and a subtle, lyrical cover of Springsteen’s “Mansion On The Hill” are flattering samples of the band’s concert sound, while “Blank Slate” and a demo version of “Tall Saint” are welcome additions to the canon. The Virginia EP also includes an epic live take of “About Today”.

Heavyweight vinyl produced by 4AD in 2012.
