VIDEO: The National – Exile, Vilify

I’ve always thought The National was one of those buzz bands that was more substance than hype. Think Arcade Fire. However, I’m revisiting that thought after checking out this video for Exile, Vilify. The song itself is a rather amazing low key affair, but the video, directed by C.F. Meister, is actually the contest winner of a fan made video contest. Looking at the visuals (and some of the other projects) it wasn’t a fair fight. Check it.
