“The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness” by The National // Sleep Well Beast (Out 9.8.17 via 4AD)
My favorite bands of the past couple of decades keep releasing new music, so who am I to not get excited as all hell? This is some wonderfully rhythmic The National from their forthcoming seventh album, and I am fucking amped.
