The National have a new album out today called High Violet. It’s really good. This is its first official video for a song you’ve heard before, “Bloodbuzz Ohio.” It was directed by Hope Hall, Andreas Burgess, and Matt’s wife Carin Besser. D.A. Pennebaker shows ups as a bartender. Otherwise it’s Berninger’s show: He offers smooth dance moves, sly glances, and a very promising raincoat. (I’m a little bummed there isn’t more water in it.)
High Violet is out via 4AD.
