- Terrible Love by The National
6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 November 2010
Can't say I've ever paid any attention to The National mainly due to fact that they seem to blend effortlessly into the background. I remember playing a gig with them years back and thinking not much at all of the experience. Word is they're a very popular band nowadays, think I might have even seen them on Jools Holland. Anyway, this 7" isn't really changing my already set in stone opinion about the band. They create indie rock with a reliance on high drama and epic production techniques. At times they could be Interpol at their most bland or maybe Arcade Fire at a guess (I don't much go for them either). So yeah, it's a powerful yet drifting single that regular folks are gonna lap up. B-side 'You Were A Kindness' features a deep and rich vocal performance backed by a a grand piano and out-there-in-the-distance guitar and organ back-up. It's working better for me than the A-side mainly thanks to the fact that the song isn't strangulated by lame radio friendly production. Could be a lost Bad Seeds track in some ways... On the plus side the vinyl is purple.
