The National: Bloodbuzz Ohio [mp3]

The National

Isn’t this what you’ve been waiting for, people: a new track from The National!? Man, just when you thought the buzz behind this band would dissipate, they go and hand out a power track like “Bloodbuzz Ohio”. And it leaves people like you and me pining for that deep voice and off-beat percussive drum slap. Oh those piano notes and building guitars — now that’s the stuff! “Bloodbuzz Ohio” has the potential to match the favorites from past albums by The National; yes, we’re talking about you, “Fake Empire” and “Mr. November”. The song is off the band’s new LP, High Violet, which hits soon via 4AD.

Below you’ll find a sample of the song at 192kbps. For a high quality 320kbps version, visit the High Violet website.

One thought on “The National: Bloodbuzz Ohio [mp3]

  1. Hey,

    Great site, you’ve given a lot of recognition to a lot of great bands. I’m a singer/songwriter, I recorded an album this past summer and would love your opinions on it. You can listen to it on The Sixty One. You can watch one of our Music Videos.

    I would be honored if you featured some of our music on your site.

    Thanks for doing what you do,

    Matthew Morgan
