The National – “Bloodbuzz Ohio” (official video) from The National on Vimeo.
This song is pretty awesome. The National are starting to grow on me. At first I kept thinking that the Crash Test Dummies meets Joy Division sound was going to be something I couldn’t get past. But, as I explored a few tracks, I found them to be more Leonard Cohen or, gasp, Bruce Springsteen. Then I heard a few cuts from their last album, “Boxer,” and their most recent album, and I have to say, I’m feeling it.
The National’s new album, “High Violet,” came out yesterday. Go get it on the cheap… it’s like 8 bucks. You’re welcome.
