The National: Sleep Well Beast

Album seven sees the now globally dispersed Ohio kings of immersive melancholy continue to wrestle with the challenge of becoming ever-more popular while scratching the creative itches that have seen all five members launch projects that stride in myriad directions. For the follow-up to 2013’s bleakly brilliant Trouble Will Find Me, the band reunited at guitarist Aaron Dessner’s upstate New York studio and the result is both a comfortingly familiar slow-burner and a departure into electronic experimentalism...  The National still strikingly beautiful, with the same flair for euphoric sorrow and compositional brilliance, but a newfound thirst for electronic invention. Sleep Well Beast won’t make them massive overnight, but the steady, organic growth of a band who get under your skin and take hold continues. The thinking man’s stadium act are very much awake. 9/10 - G Walker longlivevinyl.net
