The Hunger Games has pulled in an interesting group of musicians to record songs for their soundtrack including The Low Anthem, Neko Case and, erm, Taylor Swift. Two of the most high profile songs on there, as far as we’re concerned anyway, are from The Decemberists and Arcade Fire. While we can’t give you Arcade Fire’s new song (entitled “Abraham’s Daughter”) just yet, you can check out The Decemberists’ submission, “One Engine.” Check it out below, followed by the full track list.

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.
