Tomorrow sees the release of Beggars artists The National's new one, Boxer. It's a great record that will come back to haunt you after you've allowed it in for a brief stay. Matt Berninger's lyrics are cryptic snap shots that would often smack up against your head if not delivered in his weary baritone.
BUY the record here.
