If it seems as though we’ve been talking about the National’s excellent new record Trouble Will Find Me for weeks now it’s because we have. Even though the record was just released this week, fascination with the band and a buzzing curiosity about how they might follow up 2010′s powerhouse High Violet have kept music writers (and our own comments sections) very busy over the past month or so. Initial reactions to the album have been largely positive, with our own Tom Breihan claiming that Trouble‘s “soft, majestic intensity is a reassuring and comfortable thing.” It’s a sentiment that seems to be at the core of what so many people love about the National — a band continues to age gracefully, not through a series of radical reinventions or extreme left-turns, but by playing to their own particular strengths as songwriters … which seem to have grown more formidable with each consecutive record.

When you’re planning a remix album and want to piss off approx. half of your fan base, you call The Field, whose sprawling epics test the attention spans of even the most dedicated book reader under 30. His work on Sally Shapiro‘s
Listen to Ghost B.C.
May 24, 2013 11:30am | Cosequence Of Sound
Here’s another Japanese bonus track for you: Swedish metal lords Ghost B.C. take Depeche Mode’s most serene, meditative track in their catalogue — ahem, “Waiting for the Night” — and turn it into the sort of rock ‘n’ roll theatrical flair that Dream Theater or Roger Waters might conjure up.
As Exclaim.ca points out, the cover comes stripped off the Japanese edition of the band’s latest album, Infestissumam. Save yourself the shipping on eBay, however, and stream it below.
Infestissumam is now available via Loma Vista Recordings.

Nothing says Bonnaroo like a 5K race
May 24, 2013 11:00am | Cosequence Of Sound
Hopefully you left room in your schedule for Bonnaroo’s first annual Roo Run 5K. No, really.
On Saturday, June 15th, amidst performances by Death Grips, Solange, and The Tallest Man on Earth, the festival’s “farmland becomes a raceway, with Bonnaroovians encouraged to sweat side-by-side along a designated course that twists across the Tennessee landscape. The 5k (3.1 mile) Roo Run is dirt-stomping, sweat-drenched history in the making.”
It’s never smart to run on a stomach full of booze, which is why the festival will provide all runners with bibs. (Hey, at least they have a sense of humor.)

Watch Grizzly Bear Play Ellen
May 24, 2013 10:29am | StereoGum
I’m not sure if this necessarily qualifies as a career milestone for Grizzly Bear, since they’ve already been on a million TV shows. But maybe it’s an indicator of how nebulous and meaningless the entire idea of indie rock has become: Grizzly Bear playing their fractured, floating “Yet Again” on Ellen, as Ellen DeGeneres, who apparently loves the band, gives free copies of Shields to everyone in the studio audience. They sounded good, in any case, and you can watch the performance below.
The Faces Albums From Worst To Best
May 24, 2013 10:24am | StereoGum
We begin our discussion of the Faces, as we must, with “The Rod Conundrum” — one of the thorniest in all of rock and roll lore. Cue the ESPN 30 For 30 voice over: “What if we told you that Rod Stewart was once every bit as cool, dangerous, and desirable as Keith, Kurt, or Kanye …”
Well, It actually happened. And it was amazing. And then there was the rest of it.
