[stream] The National - High Violet

Apparently a low quality version of The National’s upcoming High Violet is out there on the interweb for those of you leak-savvy types. For the honest citizens among you (raise your hands…anyone?) the band has decided to stream the new album in high audio quality over at the New York Times website starting this coming Friday, April 23. Sorry to get your immediate-gratification hopes up. Get in line here. Until then you can still hear two new songs via the free and legal downloads the band has already graciously provided.

MP3 :: Bloodbuzz Ohio
MP3 :: Afraid of Everyone
(from High Violet. Info here)
