The National’s High Violet is almost 18 months old, but the covers keep coming. Earlier this month, we heard Oh Land deliver an upbeat electronic cover of “Bloodbuzz Ohio.” Now we have two new High Violet covers, from Sharks and Lotte Kestner.

Over at Daytrotter, British punks Sharks gave “Bloodbuzz” a crunchier, more rock and roll vibe. Kestner goes the opposite way, delivering a synthy, spaced-out version of “Conversation 16.” Check those out below, then catch up on these other High Violet covers: Ace Reporter’s “Lemonworld,” Silver Swans’ “Anyone’s Ghost,” Spies’ “Terrible Love,” 835’s “Lemonworld,” and Garden on a Trampoline’s “Sorrow.”
