In the last month, The National has released two brand new tracks for two very different projects: one for the new Tom McCarthy film, Win Win, and the other for the video game Portal 2.  While the former makes a lot of sense, the latter does not.  Regardless of how well each song works within the context of its respective project, they’re both excellent additions to The National’s formidable catalogue.  The band has always excelled at crafting exquisite slow-burners and its nice to see they’re still perfectionists when doing soundtrack work.  In fact, both “Think You Can Wait” (which features the wonderful Sharon Van Etten on backing vocals) and “Exile Vilify” could have fit in quite well on Boxer or High Violet.
