The National: Runaway


I saw the band The National from Brooklyn, New York, a few years ago with my niece at The Regency Hall on Van Ness. The full hall was riveted to them like hostages, spell-bound to the deep, plaintive music throbbing, powerful but plaintive.
Their new album, High Violet, is as good as any of the band's high calibre albums -- the debut Alligator and the sexy follow-up, Boxer.
The National is a great American band. I post this here for its caffeinated walk about Amsterdam and into the moor, running away but not getting anywhere, a "She's Leaving Home" song by a precious collective.
