The National formed in 1999 and received critical praise. It wasn’t until their 2005 album Alligator when they had gotten a wider audience. Boxer features a couple guest performances such as Sufjan Stevens and backing vocals by Marla Hansen.

Written over the course of thirteen months, Boxer is a result of hard work and marks another chapter in the band’s career. The National’s low noise and slightly menacing but isolated sounds reflect a bit of an empty city street feel.
