Listening to music and this song comes on.
The National is by far one of my favorite bands of all time. Such nestalgic vocals and lyrics. The lead singer, Matt Berninger, just kills me. I first discovered them opening for an Arcade Fire concert at DAR Constitution Hall. Have seen them a couple times sense (at the 9:30 Club, and irronically enough, at a local venue here in Richmond called The National). Their shows were very intimate and definitely serves what you hear of them on YouTube justice … I love when a band is even better live than they are recorded (vs. the oppostie). So, in thinking about this remarkable band, I “drummed up” the below lyrics while listening to one of my favorite songs (Fake Empire). You should check them out sometime. NPR recorded a great little concert of them awhile back. Enjoy!
