Brooklyn-based indie rock greats The National have just released their reliably excellent new LP, Trouble Will Find Me, and following a Letterman appearance earlier this week they continued their late-night rounds tonight on The Colbert Report. Frontman Matt Berninger sat down with Colbert for an endearingly awkward chat about perfectionism, aging and the band’s name, before the group — stately as ever — performed ‘Graceless’ for the show and single ‘Sea of Love’ as a web exclusive.
