MP3: The National Cover The Philistines Jr.
You can always count on The National to loft a song from it’s previous roots into something even grander – as they have by covering Connecticut indie-rockers The Philistines Jr.
Their forthcoming covers album ‘If A Lot Of Bands Play In The Woods…’ has not only grabbed the Cincinnati dwellers but a host of other notable guests including Jonsi, Tokyo Police Club and Nico Muhly.
Peter Katis of The Philistines Jr. produces all these bands, hence the serious pull.
