“Exile Vilify” by the National // from the soundtrack to the videogame, “Portal 2”
Wow. What a beautiful song for a video game soundtrack. I mean, really gorgeous stuff. I know I’ve only heard it a handful of times so far, but I’d be willing to wager that this is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year. The lovely piano interludes and those beautiful, cinematic strings are just something else. This is as good as anything on the wonderful “High Violet”.
Hit play and enjoy what is likely to be the prettiest song you’ll hear all week.
