PREVIEW: The National
Ah, summer 2k13 is just around the corner, which can only mean one thing: it’s Merriweather New Years! And what better embodies a relaxing, liberating summer evening than seeing chill indie rock pioneers the National? If their new songs like ‘Sullivan’ and ‘Prime’ are any indication, their self-produced sixth LP ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ (being released May 21 on 4AD) promises to be another choice record full of tightly wound, rhythmic indie goodness. If you haven’t already fallen in love with these Interpol/Shins contemporaries, take note, because this is one of those rare bands that sounds just as tight live as they do on record. Don’t miss your chance to start off outdoor concert season right. Get your Bloodbuzz on.
