The National is a fine band that happens to be from Cincinnati, although they didn’t really hit it big until they all moved to New York. 2 sets of brothers (one pair of twins) and lead singer Matt Berninger, who is a very interesting dude.

Right now, Matt has a side project with Brent Knopf from Menomena, the band is called El Vy. The first single includes lyrics about Cincinnati landmarks Eden Park and the Serpentine Wall. So naturally as a Cincinnatian I’m duty-bound to like it. But you’ll like it too.


The second song on El Vy’s new album also references two Cincinnati neighborhood, Delhi and Over-the-Rhine. But that song has dirty words in it, so Cincinnatians probably won’t like it as much. But Matt shows off some fancy dance moves in the video.
