The National: High Violet

One of the year’s best


So when you listen to The National, you’re likely to get addicted to the seemingly dark, contemplative and sometimes spacey – sometimes lush music. Your next question might be how did I miss these guys before. Matt Berninger and his band are feelin’ pretty good these days. They’re kickin’ the rubbish that usually dominates the charts. Yeah that’s over-produced crap from Justin Bieber and Lady Ga Garbage. They’ve got a tour with dates selling out already. This Brooklyn-based band is verging on the big time. If you’ve been with Passionati for a few months, you’ll remember we featured St. Vincent and The National’s track “Sleep all Summer”. They’re how I feel these days – cautiously happy, and prone to sudden visually exuberant. Listen, I’ve said it before. Tune in. Turn on.

And if you need further validation, it’s also my friend Todd Robinson’s pick for the month. Yeah that Todd. From Luna.
