Cover of High Violet

I have been listening to the recent release by the National over and over. For some reason I have not paid too much attention to these guys. I love the 2005 release Alligator but never followed through with buy any of their earlier or more recent albums. However there is a point when people suggest music to you that you have to cave in. To many people that shared the same style in music that I like recommended their new release High violet to me and I gotta say, I really dig it.

White stripes called it a day. This was not real surprise to me as Jack seems to be enjoying all his other projects to much to regress back to the 2 piece. My favourite white stripes memory was on my 30th birthday they played Hobart and I went with 20 drunken friends (after birthday cocktails and burgers) to an amazing gig. My money is they wait 10-15 years, then play a world tour and release an album headlining the big day out here in NZ/OZ. But what will Meg do in the meantime?? My money is on drifting away from the limelight and starting her own cookie company. Yes it is a long shot, not even sure she can bake but I am going with it. This is the first white stripes song I ever heard on radio 4 in Belfast. I went out and bought the album. Enjoy
