Okay. I’ll admit it, this isn’t a new band. Just new to me. The group called "The National" originated in Ohio and then moved to New York in the late 1990s. They’re very down-tempo and their lead singer is a cross between Leonard Cohen and Mark Kozalek (of Red House Painters fame). Add a bit of Van Morrison’s bizarre mysticism and you’ve pretty much wrapped up The National. Enjoy!
