"All of my thoughts of you, bullets through rotten fruit. Come apart at the seams, now I know what dying means. I am not my rosy self, left my roses on my shelf. Take the white ones they're my favorite, it's the side effects that save us." Artist: The National
Album: Trouble Will Find Me (2013)
Today's spin comes from one of my favorite contemporary groups out there. I've been following them a long time and they do such good work. They also keep busy while they aren't recording work for their own outfit, organizing things like the "Day Of The Dead" compilation. This album stands out to me as the group's most cohesive effort. Not to say that their other work isn't cohesive, it's just that this one in particular feels like every song is part of something greater than itself. Every song is great on its own (which is true for most albums by The National), but none of their past efforts managed this sense of oneness with itself. Wonderfully complex and gloomy as ever, this one will put the feels to you in a heavy way. Melodically specific as ever, it feels liken every member of the band knows exactly what to do and when to do it. The whole album is heavily worked out, decided upon. These guys are dedicated to delivering quality sound in a style unique unto themselves. This is one of those albums where it would be near impossible to pick a favorite song. I even had a hard time picking lyrics for this post. You could and should buy any of their albums because none will disappoint. Here's to Let It Be (or Nevermind). Happy spinning, friends!
