Matt Berninger, Mourn, Temples

The Big Beat with Ryan Arnold
By 93XRT
Matt Berninger is busy with his own solo work while fellow members of The National, brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner, are embarking on very cool side projects. His album Serpentine Prison is out October 16. I got hip to Mourn and Jealous of the Birds over the last couple'a months and along with Big Beat Chicago Artist of the Week Broken Robots. The entire playlist is below and online and you can check out playlists to past Big Beats here.

I mention every week because it's so important - support the artists you hear on the Big Beat and WXRT by buying their music from, whenever you can, a local, independent, or family-owned music store and, when you head out crate diving, wear a mask and let me know what you find! Connect with me on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram. My handle on all three of 'em is RyanArnoldRocks.

Your pal,-Ryan A.
