The National: High Violet

The National released their latest album High Violet yesterday, and lots of people have written lots of diverse reviews on it. Pitchfork gave it a 8.7, and The AV Club rated it a solid A, while AllMusic gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars. I haven't listened to High Violet very thoroughly yet, but I absolutely LOVED Boxer, which was my #2 album of 2007. And Matt Berninger's voice is so sexxxy!

A few weeks ago the New York Times ran a really interesting article on The National, "The National Agenda."

You can listen to High Violet in its entirety on NPR Music.

Hey Aimz:

Another story about "the National", from "Cool News" (marketing). It's about he storefront promotion that they're doing in NYC. TO coulda been the venue, but there's that restraining order that Matt's voice has out against you.
