The National’s “Alligator”: It’s growing on me

coverWhen I first heard The National’s album “Alligator” I was not impressed, and it quickly got deleted tossed into the discard pile. However, upon relistening to it online, it’s grown on me.

Some nice melancholy, this. Like Brad Roberts fronting Low with a bit of Nick Drakeyness and Post-Punk thrown in.
