My Man Crush - The National
I am not sure if I should be coming out to the world today but I can't hold it back anymore. I have a huge man-crush on the National. I can't help it. Matt Berninger's voice is so damn hypnotic. The man could sing "Mary had a little lamb" and I would probably buy it. When I finally got my hands on their newest LP "High Violet" I was in love all over again.
I really enjoyed what they did with this album. There is a great mix between the clean and the distorted. That theme seems to permeate through each track. I am only on the first couple listens but each track holds up the high standards I have set for this Brooklyn group since release Alligator in 2005. Here are some of my favorites so far... enjoy.
