The National: Boxer

The National is what current good Indie Rock sounds like. I’m glad that bands like this exist. The album Boxer is filled with great songs and takes multiple hearing sessions to grasp all the songs. The 5 peice ensemble is from New York and two of the members are brothers. A song that’s going to get your attention first is probably going to be Fake Empire. It’s like you should be walking through a big city when listening to this song. Mistaken for Strangers is a definite hook as well and the chorus is going to get you. You can try to fight it, but you can’t.

After diving into the album further, you notice songs like Gospel, which is a beautiful song. Yes, I’m a male and I said beautiful. The Slow Show and Start a War are other great songs from the album. I don’t really want to spoil this moment for you if you’re looking for new music. The National has other albums to boast and could be something worth your attention. Enjoy.
