Re: The National

Peter Mansbridge and Knowlton Nash have a band? Cool!

Friday Music Blogging: The National

Today’s post is about The National. Calm down Kevin, it’s not that The National, but rather the critically acclaimed band from Cincinnati.

Their 2005 release, Alligator, won several “Best Album of the Year” nods from the hipper critics. Last month they released an even better album, called Boxer. Their lead singer has a laconic baritone reminiscent of the ill-remembered slowcore band Idaho (think Nick Cave without the goth schtick). Here’s a track from Boxer titled “Mistaken For Strangers”. Enjoy!

(And no, Kevin, Peter Mansbridge does not appear in the video. Just let it go already!)

Quote of the day, 6/27/07


“On Hardball just now, Elizabeth Edwards called in to challenge Ann Coulter not to use any more ‘personal attacks’ against her husband. Yes, that’s the way to rebut charges of wimpery: Send your wife to beg people to stop hitting you.”
–David Weigel, Reason magazine

So, Jon,

Are you in line already? ‘Cause it looks like the darn thing might actually live up to the hype.
