THE NATIONAL
Belgium 2019 [no label, 1CD]

Pukkelpop. Marquee, Domein Kiewit, Hasselt, Belgium; August 18, 2019 [Broadcast May 11, 2020]. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV webcast).

In May 2019, American indie rock band The National released their eighth studio album, I Am Easy To Find. The album is accompanied by a 24-minute short film of the same name directed by Mike Mills, starring Alicia Vikander.

Thanks to indykid for sharing the HDTV webcast at Dime.

This is an upgrade to an earlier shared version.

+ + + + +

I Am Easy To Find is eventually another great National record, but “eventually” is exactly the issue. As beautiful as the album, and especially the short film, often are, there’s just too much work involved for anyone but the most patient and tolerant of fans. Between the two interludes and “Not In Kansas,” the length too often feels more self-indulgent than rewarding. The National stand virtually alone In their corner of intelligent, melancholic indie rock, and this record will be functional for those seeking a particular kind of solace. - spin.com

  2. Have the lunatics escaped the asylum? The silence is almost deafening. I don’t understand why they keep rehashing the same old boring conversations when they could just as easily stick their heads in an oven or more excitingly, fail to pull the ripcord once out the door at 18,000 feet!

    By U L E on Sep 3, 2020

  15. Hey DD , triple h , did you know that the motherfuckin nba coons got black lives matter on the back of their fuckin jerseys ? Even the white players , all two percent of em . The motherfuckin monkeys can have that fuckin league . Just wish white folks would quit watchin. I sure have cept for certain highlights. You can’t completely get away from it cause it’s all over the fuckin tube . The two percent whites don’t count really, cause practically all is euros . Can’t name one white American player . All sports suc today . Can’t believe what’s happened to sports after how great it was in the past . All sports died around 2000, though baseball started gettin bad in the 90s wit pitchers goin 7 innings, now it’s 4 or 5 tops

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  16. Ain’t looking forward to the coon monkey fest NFL comin up either . More coon quarterbacks than ever . Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray , De Shawn Watson, Hi Yeller Dac Prescott . The nfl is a coon fest just like the fuckin Nba

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  17. Prefer watching old games on you tube from the seventies, eighties, sixties etc when sports was sports and not dominated by coon monkeys. It was still mostly white back then and them coons acted wit respect. No tattoos or dreadlocks to be seen . And all had coon wives , non of this mixed shit

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  18. Was hopin the virus would knock sports out for this year , but I guess it ain’t gonna happen . Hopin now that white folks will just quit watchin them monkeys . Let em have a all coon audience. Coons watchin coons . Hopin for a white flight

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  19. Hell , they is even tryin to ruin nascar, got this hi Yeller Bubba Watson stirrin shit up . Ain’t no where for a white sports fan to go no more

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  20. Derrick, I heard a theory that one of the reasons that basketball and football are dominated by black apes is because white kids and their parents don’t want to associate with those gorillas. There may be other reasons also .

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  21. Maybe this will lead to white sports leagues in all sports. People today just don’t get it . Races shouldn’t be forced to mix . LBJ started that shit in the 1960s with all of his civil rights bills , bussing and other forms of forced intergration. Loving vs the state of Virginia made mixed marriage legal . Now we have what is becoming a mongrel society.

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  22. Intergration lead to the destabilization of the black ape community. Before intergration. Blacks had more family values and community pride . Now look at it . 80 percent of black ape families have no father in the home . Just single baby mamas with 10 kids by different baby daddy’s who themselves have multiple baby mamas . Hell many of these apes I see out these days look inbred . Eyes spread far apart . Heads shaped like square boxes etc .

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  23. The black leaders from the sixties and seventies all wore suits , had normal names and wanted to fit in . They were educated and spoke well . Contrast that to today . Dreadlocks, tattoos . Hip hop slang , weird names , baby mamas everywhere. How have the apes really progressed? They have regressed? Races are different for a reason. Each should stay with their own kind . 50 to 60 years later , and the races are still at each other’s throats. That says it all .

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  24. David, derrick, ever notice how many black ape kids have different last names than their mamas ? That says it all.

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  25. Like I said before Derrick, just chill out and stop getting so upset over life.

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  26. Hey triple h that’s rich comin from you

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  27. Did you guys hear that The NFL is have Black Lives Matter written in the end zone and Equality. Kiss my white ass

    By David Duke on Sep 3, 2020

  28. Did ya hear I lick ass balls and taint?

    By David Duke on Sep 3, 2020

  29. I’m an asshole who shits his pants and loves doing it.

    By HHH on Sep 3, 2020

  30. I sucka lotta cokka alla tha time-a.

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  31. Hey DD , triple h , just heard that Tom Terrific Seaver has died at age 75 . He was battling Dementia and Alzheimer’s . A great pitcher back in a era of great pitchers , Seaver , Gibson , Marichal , Palmer , Koufax , Catfish Hunter , Vida Blue , Denny McClain Luis Tiant , Cuellar , McNally . All them pitchers went the motherfuckin distance , not like these Pusey’s today . Sad day

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  32. Remember all them pitching duels , Gibson vs Seaver , Cards. Vs Mets

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  33. Wasnt your mother in that filthy porno flick giving head to homeless niggermen and licking their taints

    By David Duke on Sep 3, 2020

  34. How can I not forget Derrick. We will never see great pitching like that again. Those days are long gone. Koufax vs Marichal, Marichal vs Gibson, Whitey Ford vs Sam McDowell, Don Drysdale vs Steve Carlton. u kidding me. Im lucky to name an ace on a baseball team today. Sy DeGrom is great. Gerrit Cole got lit up the other nite. All the greats are gone. Rememeber Dwight Gooden coming up as a rookie.

    By David Duke on Sep 3, 2020

  35. Jim Palmer vs Nolan Ryan…Fergy Jenkins, Camilio Pascal, Jim Kaat, Sonny Siebery Jim Lonborg,Mc Nally, Cullar Pat Dobson, all aces.Dean Chance, Pedro Martinez, Jim Bunning, Dizzy Dean.. Before our time..the Braves PRay for rain Spahn and Johnny Sane, Bert Blyleven, Grover Cleveland Alexander,Lefty Grove, Gaylord Perry. spitball king an his brother Jim Paerry

    By David Duke on Sep 3, 2020

  36. We could do this all day and name all the greats from NBA NFL Hockey. Bobby Hull Stan Mikita Phil Esposito. All better players, never injurd with tommy john surgery. All we have today are ugly monkeys and savages

    By David Duke on Sep 3, 2020

  37. I remember watching Gaylord Perry in the late 60s pitching against Gibson and the cardinals 68 I think. The year of the pitcher Gaylord pitcher a no hitter that day beat Gibby 2 to 0 . Both guys went the distance of course. Remember that Red Schondiest the cards manager kept complaining to the umpire bout Gaylord slickin up their baseball. They even went to the mound , made him take off his cap and inspected it . Gaylord was laughing his head off . Classic.

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  38. They didn’t find nothin . Gaylord was so slick . You knew he was greasing up the bell but you never knew how he did it . He used to drive Johnny Bench crazy wit his greaseball

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  39. That next night in 68 . Ray Washburn of the cards no hit the giants , the night after Gaylord no hit the cards . Think it was the only time in baseball history they two consecutive no hitters was pitched in back to back games

    By Derrick on Sep 3, 2020

  40. Gibson was 22 and 9 in 68 . All them 9 losses was by 1 to 0 . 2 to 1 and 3 to 2 scores he pitched 13 shutouts that season including 5 shutouts in a row . 1.12 era for the season . The 68 cards was a weak hitting team Curt Floods 301 was their best average hitter . Lou Brock hit 270 I think , but stole 50 or 60 bases. Orlando Cepedas 16 homer’s led the team . Baseball was sure different back then

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  41. Gibson would have won 35 games that year if he had pitched for the Detroit Tigers wit all their big bats

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  42. DD , apparently Seaver had covid along wit the other medical problems. A fuckin shame .

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  43. Think Gibson , Palmer , Marichal is still wit us , so is Sandy Koufax. Catfish Hunter , Cuellar , McNally , Dobson , and now Seaver all dead

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  44. Think Gibson is 85 now , so is Marichal, Koufax is 84 , Palmer is the youngster at 75 same age as Seaver , man I is feeling old

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  45. I know its sad. Some good new…..Previously unheard recordings of Jimmy Page performing with The Yardbirds have surfaced online
    Previously unheard live recordings of Jimmy Page performing with The Yardbirds in 1967 and 1968 have emerged online for the first time. Recordings of The Yardbirds performing with Page in San Francisco on July 26,…

  46. Im trying to get in touch with my contact so I can send you the links. Burns my ass that I have to share such great stuff with pedophiles, faggots, niggers, spics, lgbtq, mark,billy, junkies that jagoff to kiddie porn in the basement, groupies that cunts wide as the holland tunnel. tits that droop like cow udders. Like Tony Montana said. All i Have is my balls and my words and I give them up for no one. I wish Mark was that guy Omar they threw from the helipcoter. Him and a few other scumbags here

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  47. The great things you metioned Derrick were all great memories. I remmember the Gaylord Perry incident . He was hiding the shit under his belt buckle if I rememeber correctly. Not on the brim of the cap. Too bad the retarded millenials all they can do is stick their apple IPhones up their cracks. We had it good man. Great cars, great pussy, great restauranrs

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  48. I am sooo full of shit.

  50. You’re an asshole DD, but I have no real friends to talk to.

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  51. Jerkoffs like you are the only people stupid enough to talk to me.

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  52. I don’t want to suck you off.

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  62. Big O….It’s too bad that your browser checker can only check for bad browsers or spam. What would really be great is something that would screen out everyone who would rather write about anything else but the featured artist or music in general. I still can’t figure out why you let it go this far.

    By Tjarley on Sep 4, 2020

  63. DD , ignore the Dic suckin Jew bastard name hijackers

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  64. DD , triple h , was sure that some of the sports talking heads would be doin a piece on Tom Seaver. Not one of them motherfuckin Bastards said a thing . I caught it on line . Not Steven A Smith , Skip Bayless , Cowherd , them folks at espn . None of em said a fuckin word . Seaver was one of the greatest pitchers of all time and pitched against the best , all them motherfuckin talkin heads wanted to talk bout is the coon monkey nba and nfl . Guess baseball just don’t matter to folks anymore. . I remember when Micky Mantle died , and Thurman Munson and Roberto Clemente died in them plane crashes . They all made the front pages and sportscasters did big stories on them . Tom Seaver deserves more than a one paragraph piece on the back pages . Baseball used to be the National pastime. Nobody gives a shit no more

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  65. Frank Robinson died last year , had to read bout it on line . That too would have been a big story 30 40 years ago . Nothin from the talkin heads . Al Kaline also died recently. Nothing on him either . Baseball has died man . Who would have thought it 50 years ago baseball used to be the king of sports . Guess it’s not hip hop enough for them coon monkey lovers

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  66. I was a Cardinal fan as a kid , but I always respected Seaver , Marichal, Ferguson Jenkins and all them great pitchers. Remember all them great pitching duels , when baseball was still baseball

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  67. Ive heard a few sportscasters today mention Tom Seaver. I never was a Seaver or Met fan after what they did to the Orioles in ‘69. No way Tommie Agee and Ron Swoboda make those catches during the regular. They were a team of destiny just like the orioles were in ‘66 when thy swept the Dodgers.

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  68. I remember the Cardinals whooping the RedSox in 67 and then you got your butt kicked by Mickey Lolich and Denny Mclain. I think the Yankees whooped you in 64. Another reason I cant watch baseball is no more starting pitching. Its a fucking joke. Analytics suck, Pitch Count Pitch Velocity, cmon man. Can u imagine if they used this garbage in the 60s and 70s.

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  69. DD, your makin all that up . You lyin piss drinker. LOL . Just kiddin

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  70. Not me on that last one DD

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  71. DD , Cards beat the Yankees in 64 . 7 games . Gibson over Stottlemeyer . Gibby gave up three home runs in 9th inning before gettin Bobby Richardson on a grounder Manager Ken Boyer told them press that he was commited to Gibsons heart . Gibby was tiring pitching on two days rest . Never see that again

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  72. The 67 series win over the Red Sox was Yaz triple crown year another 7 game series. Gibson won game 7 again . This time vs Jim Lonborg who won the AL cy young that year for Boston . Gibson had broke his leg that summer on a line drive by Roberto Clemente in July , but came back the last week of the season and into the series

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  73. Oh yeah , then there was 68 . Cards was the defending champs and won the pennant again . Gibson’s super human season. 22 9 1.12 era . Close to 300 strikeouts, 13,shutouts including 5 straight over 300 innings pitched . He not only won the cy young but the mvp too

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  74. Had no hitting support on that team . All his losses was by 1 0 2 1 3 2 type scores . You get the drift . Shoulda won 30 games maybe more

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  75. That 68 series still stings . Gibson outdueled Denny McClain in game one with 17 strikeouts and cards was up 3 games to 1 . Then in game 5 everything started turning to shit . Brock bein called out at home tryin to score standing up as Freehan blocked the plate . To this day he says his foot hit the plate before Bill Freehans tag

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  76. They lost game five and went back to St Louis and got pounded 13 to one in game 6 setting up game 7 with Gibson and Mickey Lolich . Scoreless thru 7 innings. With two outs Jim Northrup hits a ball to deep centerfield , Curt Flood stumbles in a pothole and the ball goes over his head . 3 runs score , they added one more , all wit two outs . Lolich was unbelievable. You gotta tip your cap to him then runs was all he needed to close the deal

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  77. Still wanna cry when I see him jump into Freehans arms after that last out in the ninth , guess you felt the same in 69 one year later when Davey Johnson made that final out vs Mets

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  78. Think it was Davey , flying out to either Tommie Agee or Cleon Jones, not sure though on that one

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  79. Yup it was Davey Johnson flying out to Cleon Jones . The mvp of that series was a journeyman, Average player named Donn Clendennon. Aside from Seaver the Mets had Jerry Koosman and Gary Gentry in the rotation along wit Nolan Ryan . Ryan was still young and raw and hadn’t become the Nolan Ryan yet . Lots of folks forget he started wit the Mets

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  80. Remember them catches by Agee and especially Ron Swoboda who made that diving catch .folks forget that the Chicago Cubs choked that division away that year . They had a nine game lead in mid August and fell apart as the Mets surged

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  81. Cubs was a better overall team than the Mets , Ron Santo , Ernie Banks , Billy Williams Ferguson Jenkins , all hall of famers

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  82. Leo Durocher was the manager . It should have been Orioles vs Cubs that year instead of Mets . Cubs blowing that division that year 69 was the biggest choke job in baseball history

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  83. What do you think about this music Derrick?

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  84. ignore question above. not me. did you hear that lovie smiths son was arrested on traffiking and prosttution

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  85. Davey you are a stupid pitiful little boy. Why aren’t you interested in the music? This is a music site you insolent, belligerent little asshole. I gotta get me another quart of that Popov Vodka to calm my nerves. You were such a waste of a child. I’m sorry the accident of birth threw you at me like a rotten sack of meat.

    By Maxine Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  86. Typical coon behavior DD pimps , hookers crack dealers . That’s what most is all about

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  87. Lovie Smith always seemed a cut above your typical coon monkey , guess you can’t control what your kids do . Wonder if the son is a hi Yeller ? Lots of that shit these days

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  88. Derrick , your memory is phenomenal? Remembering sports events over 50 years ago .

    By HHH on Sep 4, 2020

  89. Guys , more cops vs ape news . Black Ape is suffocated by cops In Rochester NY after running naked through the streets.

  90. Daniel Prude dies from having a bag placed over his face . Female black ape mayor suspends all of the brave officers. Sounds like they were protecting citizens to me . Another photo opportunity for Bobblehead Al.

    By HHH on Sep 4, 2020

  91. Sorry for all the fake ID comments, the meds just aren’t working, and I’m a miserable little shitbag anyway.

    By Corey M on Sep 4, 2020

  92. I’m not sorry for sucking dudes dongs.

    By Derrick on Sep 4, 2020

  93. I blow donkeys. Not apologizing.

    By David Duke on Sep 4, 2020

  94. I wallow in shit, no worries.

    By HHH on Sep 4, 2020

  95. I saw that HHH. I also read the article on Lovie Smiths son. This is the brave new word, Cant even say the word white people anymore. considered racist. Must say the word diversity.
