I love this song. The National are not known for doing anything this fast or uptempo, but this song proves they can. Maybe it was just some experimentation on their first album, Alligator, but when I think of underground indie rock, this is usually the first song in my head. That, of course, is due to the fact that I first heard this on MTV2’s Subterranean like five years ago. It was and still is a great show that airs late nights on that former music channel. I have much respect for the program, as it gave me my first taste of the songs that would later define me as a person. Anyway, enjoy this song and pick up their new album High Violet at their myspace.

About MyselfHey there! My name's Chris and I'm from New Jersey. Music is kinda my thing, so I figured 'why not write about it?' I hope to spread music that isn't radio garbage, no matter how obscure. I promise not to be too biased (no hipster BS here!) and to keep an open mind, and I ask that you do too. Enjoy!
