My Music Monday

I'm a little excited. I've seen some of the releases slated for the first half of 2023 and I'm cautiously optimistic. 

While it won't be in order or anything - or even every week - I will tackle some of the pre-released songs from those will be disks. 

I'm starting with the National and their new song, "Tropic Morning News". 

I haven't been wild about the last two National releases, so they are really putting the 'cautious' into my optimism. They dropped one of my top songs last year with Bon Iver, which kind of made up for especially their last disk.  

I'm not sure "Tropic Morning News" breaks any new grounds, but it's a solid song.  The bass line is different and while they almost always have muted drums - and they still are - they are a little brighter. 

It gives me better hope for the rest of their new disk First Two Pages of Frankenstein, which comes out at the end of April.
