    The National's Matt Berninger and Menomena's Brent Knopf released one of last year's most delightful surprises, Return to the Moon, from their side project EL VY. EL VY stopped by Late Show With Stephen Colbert to perform the title track of the record, and it's as gorgeous live as it was on the record, with the swooping strings and Berninger's wounded howl. However, after the passing of David Bowie, EL VY put on a special web only performance of Bowie's megahit (and Niles Rogers coproduction) "Let's Dance." And, if we're being honest, Berninger proves he can get kind of funky. It's one of what will certainly be many tributes to David Bowie in the days/weeks ahead.
