I just picked up The National’s new album High Violet, the Brooklyn via Ohio’s fifth studio LP. Unlike most people, I’m not over the moon about them. Most of their albums have two or three great tracks with the rest of them coming off as droning. Really, nothing they have done have altered the feeling that, well, they. are. kind. of. boring.
Despite the overwhelming love and adulation from everybody. Still, this video and song are kinda cool.
What I think is, we just haven’t found common ground and mutual shared experiences that two lovers need to really connect on a deeper emotional level. For the most part our relationship has consistented of several steamy one-song stands. [via]
