Earlier this year Hospitality dropped their debut album on Merge Records, and it seemed to be swallowed up in the wash of great releases surrounding it. Hopefully, it will get another look by people who enjoy concise, perfectly executed indie rock. Ahead of their upcoming tour in continued support of the record, the band has released a video for “Eight Avenue.” Check out the race car-themed video below, as well as the dates for their fall tour.

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.
