The National – “Afraid Of Everyone” & “Conversation 16″ Live Video

To summarize: So far we’ve heard “Bloodbuzz Ohio,” watched the guys debut “Terrible Love” on Fallon, and caught “Sorrow” “Little Faith” and “Anyone’s Ghost” at their Bell House show last month. Now here’s footage of two more High Violet songs, bringing us ever-closer to the full tracklist. “Afraid Of Everyone” has a nice long crescendo that lasts the entire song, and “Conversation 16″ has a constant drive that definitely needs the little breather three-fourths of the way through — although this audience thought it was the end of the song. Always embarrassing, when you’re the only one who’s started clapping. These videos were taken at the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville, TN.
