Sleep Well Beast

The National

The National releases their seventh studio album, which comes four years after the release of their acclaimed Trouble Will Find Me. They've become known as talented songsmiths with an ear for melody, gritty and emotionally honest lyrics, and a sound that ranges from strings-laden pop to pummeling rock to reflective folkiness, like a gruffer version of the Shins. Their latest includes the tracks Guilty Party and The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness.
