Until a couple days ago, we hadn’t heard anything from The National (with their oh-so-generic name) since 2007. Here is a great track off of their new album High Violet. There is something reminiscent of their old stuff but it’s curent, and emotional and relevant. It’s like the same dude, but in new duds.
‘Bloodbuzz Ohio’ is the album’s centerfold. It is more upbeat than some of the other tracks, and it’s lovely to hear Matt Berninger’s crush-worthy voice in a fresh context.
The National is coming through Toronto on June 8 & 9, playing at Massey Hall.
