I think it was Caitlin R. Kiernan’s blog that introduced me to The National.
I was immediately drawn to their mellow style and the sometimes strange lyrics. We were slated to go to see them live around this time last year but unfortunately life got in the way and we couldn’t go.
This is one of my favourite tracks, Slipped from the album Trouble Will Find Me.
My favourite line?
