If I had to name my “favorite” (living) band, it would be a battle of epic proportions between my beloved Lykke Li, and The National. The more I hear of Matt Berninger’s baritone, the more I want to hear it. It’s like thick, bittersweet chocolate. I mean really. A Pacific Northwest girl to the bone, I am a sucker for the dark and stormy, the melancholy that knows just where you live.
I’ve been counting down the days to May 21st and the release of their new album, Trouble Will Find Me, and so was delighted to find they have just posted the album’s first single, “Demons.” Listen and watch below:
Bonus: The first episode of Mad Men‘s 6th Season aired last night. Consequence of Sound expertly notes: “It’s a shame Mad Men only uses music of its era, because god damn are Beringer and Don Draper made for each other.” Yes, but they’re also both made for me (hello Rolling Stone cover shot). Bwahaha.
