MP3 of the Day #130: The National

By on Friday, 4th December 2009 at 10:00 am

This one isn’t a new track unfortunately, but I plain and simply love it, one of my favourites of 2007. The National‘s Fake Empire is dark, brooding, and a fitting dose of melancholy for what I’m feeling at the moment. The lead single from their 2007 smash The Boxer, it’s debatable what your Fake Empire is (the USA? the honeymoon period of a relationship?), but they provide lyrics Morrissey would love and music that few bands can maintain the quality of.

I’m super excited for their return in 2010, and you should be too.
