"Boxer" and the Brilliance of The National's Bleed Rock

On July 25, 2017

Steve Hyden, writer for Uproxx and staunch defender of rock music of all shapes and sizes, is here to talk the Vinyl Me, Please album of the month "Boxer" by The National. As a general PSA, he and I love The National to a possibly unhealthy degree and we go long on the history of the band, what makes them such a singular group, and why "Boxer" may be the perfect synthesis of their most important elements and themes. Prepare to be haunted by this album, but in like a cool way, and get the full backstory on one of the most important indie rock records of the modern era.

Follow Steve on Twitter and become addicted to Uproxx with a quickness.
