The National – New Album

Good Morning!

The first song I heard  by The National was  “So Far Around The Bend” on an album called Dark Was The Night. There are two of these albums, one is called “This Disc”, and other “That Disc”, and both are definitely worth checking out because they include so many amazing artists such as Feist, Bon Iver, Dirty Projectors, Arcade Fire and Beirut… just to name a few. I think I know every word to the first 5 songs because that’s all I can get through on my way to and from work. This song by The National is really catchy and Matt Beringer, by whom the song is written and sung, has a very distinctive and deep voice.

That being said, The National are scheduled to release a new album on May 11th called High Violet. They have been performing in small venues to promote the album, and appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon earlier this month. I found one of the songs,  “Bloodbuzz Ohio”, from the new album on youtube, so here it is:

Take a look at what I think is worth looking at on the web - a collection of art, music, movies, web design, and whatever else catches my eye. Be pepared for the occasional ramble about my life, as well.
