Song of the Day (11/02/09) November 3, 2009

Next to Elbow, The National is undoubtedly my favorite new band of the last ten years.  It’s nothing I’m really able to put my finger on, but I think it has something to do with how the band distills the best bits of Nick Cave, Tindersticks, and mid-80’s Simple Minds and U2, and turns it into something completely new and exciting.  Actually, that’s a totally crappy way of describing their music.  The best thing you can do is listen to this song.  It’s called “Secret Meeting,” and it’s the first track on their 2005 album, Alligator.
