The National – “Exile Vilify”

08/08/2011

Here’s an infectious piano ballad with strings (sighing away, don’t they always) from the Portal 2 soundtrack. It’s become the standby song  for those times when I need to loop something awesome while futzing* around on the internet.  You gotta hand it to Valve to have gotten The National to do something for them. As far as I can tell on Tumblr, the Portal playing folks say the song is thematically spot-on for the game’s protagonist. Legit!

Prepare to have a new favorite.

*To futz– Waste time; idle or busy oneself aimlessly; e.g. playing solitaire on Neopets.
