Spiral Stairs – “Exiled Tonight” (Feat. The National’s Matt Berninger)

Spiral Stairs, better known to many of us as Pavement co-founder Scott Kannberg, is getting ready to release the new solo album Doris & The Daggers. We’ve already posted two of its songs: “Dundee Man” and “Dance (Cry Wolf),” the latter of which features Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle. On the latest song he’s shared, Kannberg gets some help from another indie rock headliner: Matt Berninger, singer of the National. The song doesn’t sound much like Pavement or the National; it’s an oddly jaunty little jangler about sad things. Check it out below, via Exclaim!

Doris & The Daggers is out 3/27 on Nine Mile/Domino.
