The National - "About Today"

On June 28th, the National are reissuing their 2004 EP Cherry Tree on twin brothers' Bryce and Aaron Dessner's imprint, Brassland. The 10" vinyl is limited to 3,000 copies, 500 of which will be pressed on red wax. As an incentive, the band is offering up "About Today," one of their first truly classic cuts, as a free download via Bandcamp. The epic nearly 9-minute live version of "About Today" from 2008's The Virginia EP is still one of my all-time favorite National recordings, so while you're at it, snag that as well.
