4AD is offering $2 off of all National LPs right now. I may finally order The Boxer.


If there were ever an album that I would want to shut myself in to wholly enjoy an LP in all its vinyl glory it would be Boxer.

I mean, I'm very familiar with Boxer. I just don't own it on vinyl. Maybe i'll pull the trigger today. I've never seen it in stores, weirdly enough.

The drums are such a huge component to this band...at times I actually kinda wish they'd lower the volume on them on some tunes. To hear these guys in more of an aggressive acoustic-strum type of sound.

However, I do really enjoy the drums...does make them a hard band to fall asleep to though.

Their summer tour in support the album will include dates with Dirty Projectors and a homecoming gig at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, plus dates in North America and Europe.
