Been listening to The National a lot recently. Really digging their new album, High Violet. I really dig the drumming in their music. Going to see them live tomorrow night...the last time I heard them was 4 years ago in New York City; they put on a free show to promote a new radio station. One of the better live acts I've ever seen...up there with Built to Spill and Phish.

Video is kinda strange;

Me too, though sometimes I wish he would articulate a little better so I could follow the lyrics.

I sort of go back and forth on The National. I guess it depends on the mood I'm in. I think the lyrics are often the weakest link in the chain, though.

I streamed the new one a few times and thought it was ok, but didn't buy it. Maybe I'll get around to it some day, but right now, I like The Boxer the best.

My first impression of High Violet was meh. But after several listens it's really grown on me; definitely not as rocking as their other works, but it has a real nice mood to it. Many of the songs start of slow and build up to a moderate climax, which I really enjoy in music.

Definitely mood music, though.

Anyone here like Metric? Love this song--I think it came out last year so it may be old news to some here, but I just heard it the other day.
