The National have a new album out, It’s called High Violet. And just like the time when your parents sat you on their knee and told you about the birds and the bees, a similar thing happens when a band have a new LP out. The stalk cherry picks the most commercially viable song on the album and drops it into its own little case as a tiny baby single. How cute. “Bloodbuzz Ohio” is classic National territory, moody, epic, layered and almost certainly going to mean something to everybody. Matt Berninger’s vocals are once again pitch perfect and as usual manages to make every line seem amazingly vital, besides, just look at him.

What a GQ mother fucker.
