    I haven't had any time to listen to the entire National album, but what I heard has been good. Here is the download link for the next day. I like the addition of the female voices. This seems to be a trend this year with the bigger established indie bands.

    I am digging it, seems kind of like they found a good balance of the melancholy of the last album and the more upbeat stuff from previous albums

    I definitely love it. I still feel like I want to see them get back to being even more upbeat, quirky, and I love when they have songs that build in intensity. I feel the material is making some of the concerts more melancholy then they were in the past. Ultimately I want to see how they blend the new material into their show before I fully judge. I need to listen a few more times, since it is such a big album, but I am missing songs like...

    Karen
    All the Wine
    Lucky You
    Apartment Story
    Brainy
    Vanderlyle

    My favorites so far are...

    You had your soul with you (which has been out for awhile)
    Quiet Light
    The Pull of You
    Hey Rosey
    Hairpin Turns
    Rylan

    The building songs are by far their best live. I hope I am not coming to see them in Brooklyn for a more melancholy show.

    i'm more on the sour side of the national album

    but I think in a concert setting it could mix well with the rest of their catalog

    Love melancholy The national as a recording. At a live show too much can be a buzz kill. Last tour was a little too melancholy for me.

    I saw them in Asheville last year and didn't think they were bad at all. Good show. Thanks for the heads up, googling tour dates now :thumb:

    This Morabeza Tobacco album is pretty enjoyable in a light hearted indie pop type of way. Kind of like an Ariel Pink meets Chvrches meets Beach House type of feel.
