The National / Live Video & Remixes
Vincent Moon created three live videos and posted them on his site. They've been edited a little, each with a different look. Live at la Guinguette here
The National are now releasing Alligator in Europe with a bonus disc and for everyone who had already bought it before, Beggers Banquet is offering the 5 track bonus material disc which features these two remixes, to download. They aren't remixes per say but alternate version (alternate mixes).
The National - Lit Up (Remix) This song features different drums, the most apparent difference is that there is lots of hi-hat play going on. Also the guitars are brought forward more.
The National - Secret Meetings (Remix) This track has lots more keys and also with different drum situations. In the intro the drums don't kick in until the 25 sec mark.
If you have the actual album, they pulled a Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and have an option for album owners to type in the UPC to get access to the Bonus material. Do that here.
