The National - Secret Meeting
Alligator should’ve been on my list of best albums of last year, its just that I’ve only just heard it. Its an album that hits the spot in all the right areas for me.
Secret Meeting isn’t my favourite track of that album, but it was the one offered as a free download, so here it is!

Starflyer 59 - "Wake up Early"
Being my favourite band and all, I’ve been desperate to find evidence of a Starflyer 59 song released for free, and finally I got one! There are different sides to Starflyer, the earlier white-noise shoegazing sound gave way to dabblings into Electronica and even a New Order style sound on the last album.
“Wake up Early” is the opening track from “I Am The Portuguese Blues” (the album before the current one) and its a reet belter. I wanted a track that would demonstrate their noisier sound, and I got it.

Opinion seems divided over Wolf Parade, but I’m very much in love with this song. Perhaps coming from Montreal doesn’t help comparisons with The Arcade Fire (Wolf Parade are also supporting them on the current tour).
