The National, ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ – Album Review

The National pretty much summed up their aesthetic 10 years ago with the title of their second album, ‘Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers.’ No other blog-blessed indie band of the 21st century captures despair, melancholy and gloom in song quite like the Brooklyn-based quintet.

It's lively and alive, and features the indie rockers performing in a cramped white space, wearing coordinated suits and trying to play their instruments despite space limitations.

The National Debut Two New Songs on ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Fans of the National won't be able to find the band's new album, ‘Trouble Will Find Me,' in stores until May 20, but it doesn't take much searching to find several tracks bound for the disc online.
