Excited for High Violet

the_national_In just a few weeks The National will be dropping their newest album, High Violet, and it looks to be well worth the wait since 2007’s Boxer. I’ve included a live track shamelessly pilfered from Music the World Forgot of their performance of ‘Terrible Love‘ on Jimmy Fallon that I absolutely am in love with.

Just recently, the entire album went up streaming on the New York Times Website, along with an exhaustive but fantastic five-page article on the band. Since I know everyone’s going to hear the album, I won’t bother to encourage you to check it out, but DO take a look at the article. It gives a really intimate look at the band as a type of “family,” which I don’t think I would have guessed, knowing them just from their music.
