The National - The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness
Brown sent me the link to this new track by The National a week or so ago but I'm just getting around to it today. It's hard to process it completely without the context of the entire album, which is titled Sleep Well Beast and available for pre-order here. I'm still fairly new to The National; I fell in love with High Violet about three years ago and since they've been one of those bands I hold my rabid esteem for the first album I love by them against everything else they've done. As usual once I find I need another sequence of songs I'll fall for another record, it's already happening a but with The Boxer. I'm hoping by the time this come out I'll be full hilt into it.
