Stream Boxer Now!

"Boxer", the new album from The National is due out May 22. Right this very minute you can go to their My Space and listen to the whole record free. Trust me, this is greatness personified. I think I mentioned before that I was slow to convert to their last album "Alligator", but lately I have had it on constant play. It's an amazing record of great depth, warmth and sincerity. And Matt Berninger's voice does funny things to my insides. If you don't own "Alligator" buy it now, fall in love with it and then buy "Boxer".

Here are the lyrics from "All the Wine" from Alligator. I post these because I love these words and I love this song.


I'm put together beautifully
Big wet bottle in my fist, big wet rose in my teeth
I'm perfect piece of ass
Like every Californian
So tall I take over the street, with highbeams shining on my back
A wingspan unbelievable
I'm a festival, I'm a parade

And all the wine is all for me
And all the wine is all for me
And all the wine is all for me

I'm a birthday candle in a circle of black girls
God is on my side
Cuz I'm the child bride
I'm so sorry but the motorcade will have to go around me this time
Cuz God is on my side
And I'm the child bride

And all the wine is all for me
And all the wine is all for me
And all the wine is all for me

I carry the dollhouse, safe on my shoulders
Through the black city, night lights are on in the corners
And everyone's sleeping upstairs
All safe and sound
All safe and sound, I won't the let psychos around
All safe and sound, I won't let the psychos around

I'm in a state, I'm in a state
Nothing can touch us my love
I'm in a state, I'm in a state
Nothing can touch us my love

MP3: All the Wine
