Liz Harris is preparing for another year with some notable releases. She’ll re-release her well received album Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill via Kranky, and will also release a new album of songs from the same time period. The Man Who Died In His Boat is the title of this new collection, and below you can hear the track “Vital” from it. Both new (or should I say old?) records will see the light of day on February 4th, and they’ll follow on from the double LP A | A: Alien Observer / Dream Loss she self-released last year.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
