By 2010, The National were no longer just another band from Brooklyn. After two successive, successful slow-burn albums (Alligator and Boxer), they had grown into one of the most feted indie bands. That year they released High Violet, which features their gig staple ‘Bloodbuzz Ohio’. The track kicks off with Bryan Devendorf’s persistent drum solo that lays the ground for the instruments that follow. This was a high watermark.
