What can I say about The National that hasn't been said by anyone with a rock/alternative/indie music blog. Nothing.
Their stuff probably won't grab you from the first listen but after a while, you just won't be able to stop listening to their stuff.
Here's "Anyone's Ghost" from High Violet. Maybe my favourite album of 2010.
Hey, Pretty Boy!
And a recent performance of "Conversation 16" on Letterman.
"I was a afraid I'd eat your brains because I'm evil"
I have GOT to see these guys live!
