We’ve given you our very positive Evaluation and all the water metaphors a grown man could ever need. Now you can listen to a high-res High Violet from start to finish and see where you stand on the National’s newest. It’s over at NYTimes, along with a large feature on the band. The stream stays up until 4/27, the words remain forever.
High Violet is out 5/11 via 4AD. During release week (5/11-15), the band’s curating five nights of events at the “The High Violet Annex” (aka 13 E 4th Street, NYC, the vacant space next to Other Music). Keep watch more more details at highviolet.com.
