Stream: The National’s ‘High Violet’

    If you’ve been able to resist the urge to grab one of the multiple leaks floating around the net right now (and if so, I applaud you), here’s your reward: The New York Times has a high-quality stream of the National’s excellent High Violet right here, right now. The stream is accompanied by an excellent profile of the band, which makes for a total immersion scenario into the National. Look out for High Violet, which is set for release on May 11, later this year, when it hits top ten lists like crazy.
