The National, arbiters of all things doom-laden yet somehow completely and utterly uplifting (“Bloodbuzz Ohio” always makes me want to smile broader than my face can handle and cry wet, salty, mascara-stained tears at the same time) played Brixton Academy the other night and were joined by fellow Brooklynite, oddball and indie-folk god Sufjan Stevens onstage for a rendition of “Terrible Love”. Stevens played tambourine and provided backing vocals to the song, but stayed out of the limelight, probably wary that his own performances are usually mind-bogglingly eye-catching. Experimental composer Nico Muhly also joined the band onstage, and while the recording of this – by a fan who attended the gig – isn’t obviously super quality, it actually sounds pretty decent considering the ad hoc circumstances. I’m sharing this with you because I think it’s a great moment, captured nicely in the heat of things. Enjoy!
