I Was Afraid..I’d Eat Your Brains..

The National

Have you heard of them? If you haven’t.. you should go check their work out on Spotify (please leave iTunes for Spotify if you haven’t already) or on iTunes (if it’s available there, I wouldn’t know..because I’m all about the Spotify).

Lead vocalist Matt Berninger has what was described by someone (who’s opinion I respect deeply) as one very similar to Johnny Cash. Their music has a dark swagger. It’s just sort of intoxicating.. and yes, some fairly strange lyrics. Oddly enough, the music composition lends something to those weird lines, and makes them serious..believeable even. That’s where the title of this post comes from, their song “Conversation 16″ on their album “High Violet”

 

It’s one of those albums that, if you’re into Indie Rock, you can probably listen to the whole album. Go see for yourself. Let me know what you think  :)
