The National’s ‘High Violet’ released Tuesday
The National’s High Violet is Tuesday’s big release, an album we fans have been anticipating for months. It sounds good (NPR is streaming the album if you want to check it out). While I don’t hear a Mr. November on this new one, the National consistently makes great albums. Alligator remains the high-water mark but my guess is the hype around High Violet is going to draw some new listeners.
