Last night, The National (accompanied by a brilliant horn section) debuted a bevy of tunes from their forthcoming album, High Violet, at Brooklyn’s most pristine venue. Upon initial introduction, High Violet maintains the morose sensuality of Boxer while harking back to the unabated vigor of Alligator. In other words, there’s a high probability that it will be instantly epic. TMS Rating: 10/10. Earlier this week, The National performed on Jimmy Fallon.
