Can somebody make any suggestions for the National? Lately when I'm listening to new artists I just go to their Spotify page and play from the top down, which starts with top hits, which is often the newest hits, and then it goes from newest to oldest in order, unless some reissues are in the mix. That is not the best way to be introduced to a band. I hope these suggestions don't make me miss Boys Noize. I doubt it will.

I wish I had made a list when the lineup first came out. If I had, I think it would have looked something like this:
1. OutKast 2. The National 3. Cut Copy 4. Queens of the Stone Age 5. Chance the Rapper 6. M.I.A. 7. Violent Femmes 8. Foals 9. Phosphorescent 10. Rudimental
It will be interesting to me to see how it changes over the next 86 (!) days. Since the lineup announcement, I've been getting increasingly more excited for Banks, Boys Noize, and Shakey Graves. And before you jump on my ass, I don't have a ticket to July.

Don’t get your hopes up. We are talking right now but that’s as far as it’s gotten. We’ve talked about this kind of thing many times over the years and while it’s true that this is the furthest along it’s gotten, conceptually, it’s still just talk.
