Damn – it sure has been quite the while, hasn’t it?
Should one care to do the math, one would deduce that February 13 (last post) to March the 26th (this post) spells an interval of roughly, correct me if I’m wrong, six weeks. So…to make up for this six weeks absence, I will post six Song Of the Day posts today.
Sound fair? We’ll get started with:
The National – Bloodbuzz Ohio
My first encounter with The National was through their song ‘Fake Empire’. I had seen the album cover on an internet article and decided to check them out. After having listened to them, I immediately grew to love them. They’re one of those bands where your mind simply tells you ‘Man, dude, you’ve got to listen to more of their stuff”. They quite remind me of Franz Ferdinand.
The National is an indie rock band whose roots lies in Cincinnati, Ohio. Formed in the year 1999 by Matt Berninger and 4 of his childhood friends, the band enjoyed its debut album on the 30th of October, 2001 and has since then released four more albums, along with at least 2 EPs.
Bloodbuzz Ohio is the lead single on the album High Violet, released May 10, 2010.
