Artist: The National
I so love that chiming, what is it, C? I used to have a great ear for notes, just like I too used to read the American dictionary. That note is so insistent, like it’s trying to win you over. And those anxious, skittering drums. I think the percussion makes the song as much as anything, even the voice. Without it, it’d likely be just another pretty song. Which is not a knock at all. Despite a tone with some weight, it’s a tight, efficient song.
Anyway, here’s to the timekeepers.
