PostSubject: The National (and a load of other bands)   Wed Jul 08, 2009 9:45 pm

Was semi-into this band, had a few of their songs. in a random youtube clip Brian said, The National's Boxer would be one of 5 albums to take on a desert island i think. so being the loser i am i downloaded it all. also, does anyone else also finding themselves listening to more soul because of the '59 sound, i do for sure

other bands:Titus andronicus, Constantines, Arcade Fire, City and colour, Airborne toxic event, Bon Iver (just a couple good songs)... thoughts

oh for any folk fans, a very good british up an coming band called Mumford and sons are superb

Boxer definitely one of my favorite albums right now. Mistaken for Strangers is a great song!
And Fake Empire has a simple but awesome rhythm. Treble in 4/4 time, but bass in 3/4. Works so well!

Yeah, I too have been trying to listen to more soul cos of T59S. Listening to Brian's influences has broadened my music taste for sure!

I loved The National's Boxer, but for me it's too somber for a summer time vibe...I put it in heavy rotation in the dead of winter, and it works for me.

I saw Titus andronicus open for Lucero a while ago. Having never heard them before I wasn't impressed with the live show at all. It was kind of a mess. I'll have to check out a record because I like all the other bands on that list.

Yeh nice list of bands there , got into the National due to my brother listening to them but Bon Iver is immense especially when its just the singer and his guitar like on Jools Holland. Mumford and sons album is really good too.

Bon Iver is incredible. I feel like I should like Titus Andronicus but I don't really. I like the National too.

I think the New York Times are streaming the new album on their website. I'm getting into The National at the moment, Alligator is a brilliant album. Haven't listened to Boxer as much but Squalor Victoria is a great song.

That is quite a bold statement. But I know several people who would agree with you. I love 'em, but have learned the hard way that it is a bad idea to listen to them while driving at night...
