When I saw The National
open for Modest Mouse open for REM that pretty much sums up the situation, as far as notoriety in my brain. Fast forward to today and High Violet
is extremely anticipated (by us) as the medium between anthems and introspection. First single "Bloodbuzz Ohio" certainly backs up that stake, a charming chug-along which uses simple elements to create an atmospheric effect... but you already know how well they do that.
