'Mistaken for Strangers' / 'Blank Slate' and 'Santa Clara'
I don't know the national that well, I think I would get them confused with the Walkmen and I liked the Walkmen better for whatever reason. That and I think whenever I would listen to alligator, it starts out so strong with abel and then never kind of gets that energy back. I kept trying seeings as how it made almost every best of the year lists. Their new album comes out in a month, and the above pictured 7" can be yours by preordering.
New York-via-Ohio quintet, The National, have announced the release of their new album, Boxer, out worldwide May 21st and in the US May 22nd.
