Rhapsody Originals (EP, Exclusive)
by The National
Released: Feb 2008
Label: Beggars Banquet
Although they've been around since the late 1990s, The National finally blew up in 2007 with their fourth album, Boxer. Rhapsody Originals hosted the introspective indie-rockers for an exclusive concert during New York's CMJ Music Marathon. The Brooklyn-based five-piece performed four of their more powerful and brooding songs from the critically acclaimed full-length; imagine Joy Division on Lexapro.
