The National



I listened to a couple of songs from The National a while ago when everyone was blogging about their tour troubles with Clap Your Hands but I really didn't like what I heard. Yesterday I just happened to have a copy of their disc Alligator and so I put it on while I was grading papers and loved it. Maybe it's the mood I'm in but there are several standout tracks on this disc. I regret not giving it a closer listen sooner. Anyway I'd like to highly recommend this album to those of you that are open to new sounds that are slightly depressed and at times a bit angry. I'll try to put up some mp3's later.

Alligator got the indietorrents top 10 for 2005. It was good stuff but I have a hard time getting into the guy's voice.
