Anonymous asked: I need advice. I've liked The National for a while, but recently I've grown wary of their music. A few months ago, I went through a bad break-up and afterward, The National was all I'd listen to since their songs resonated with my feelings back then. But now whenever I hear them, it brings up memories of my ex and upsets me. I don't want to hate them because they're a great band and deep down I want to stay a fan, but I don't know what to do about this aversion I'm developing.

This is a tough one. I think that what would be best is to get back to basics. Sit down with the records and figure out why you fell in love with them in the first place. Look at it like couples therapy. You need to spend some quality time just listening to them to figure out what makes them special in the first place. Buy yourself a nice bottle of wine or something, I don’t know maybe light some candles, close out the rest of the world and just play them. Play a record from beginning to end, play all of their records from beginning to end, but completely saturate yourself in the music. Really concentrate on the music and the words. Or maybe you could go for a drive. Just take a long drive somewhere maybe and listen to them in the car. I think the most important thing is for you to be alone with the music for a while and figure everything out. The music obviously has a lot of baggage for you and I totally get that, try to work out why you first listened to them. I hope this helps, good luck and tell us how it goes.
