LNZNDRF - New Band Alert.
Members of The National and Beirut (two of my favourite bands) have come together to release an album under the name 'LNZNDRF'. And so far, so good; I really dig 'Beneath the Black Sea'. They're playing a smattering of gigs in Europe and the U.S. (annoyingly I'll miss their NYC dates), but check them out if you are around. Here's some gear, and said dates.
