The National are a band that you are either in love with or have never heard of. Whatever your incoming trajectory, there is only oneÂ destinationÂ now: their fantastic new single, “Bloodbuzz Ohio” from theÂ forthcoming LP,Â High Violet. The National are pretty much the kings impeccably-propelled smokey-voiced piano jams that are somehow both lighter and heavier than the term “rock” would suggest. If your’re not immediately sold on this brand of aural medicine than please have patience, I’ve thrown in my favorite tracks off their last two albums so you can better understand Â their magic. I didn’t really get on board with The National until I got into “Apartment Story” and their sound suddenly seemed to make sense. I’dÂ recommendÂ listening to their songs in blocks. Their music sets a mood that is best enjoyed when you give yourself over to it and take in the whole album. Until High Violet drops on May 11th, you may just want to put these three on repeat.
