Video: Bandwidth Sessions – The National

The last video I posted just there showed Kittser on the streets of Belfast courtesy of The Bandwidth Sessions and low and behold they’ve also worked with none other than The National. Way back in 2008, Bandwidth got Matt Berninger and co in for a stripped down version of a few tracks and the result is truly special with Berninger’s distinctive baritone suiting the acoustics perfectly.

They stole the (slow) show at Electric Picnic last weekend and I honestly cannot wait to see them in the Olympia this coming December. Tickets, priced at around €30 go on sale tomorrow (10th September) and will be gone in minutes in all likelihood such is the continually growing stature of the Ohio natives.

    I know! It's going to be incredible – if they were that good on the main stage imagine what it will be like in such a small, intimate venue – perfecto! 🙂
