Without further ado, here is your chart
Please note that :
Songs from MacDemarco & Mark Lanegan Band following their entry in the Mcch will be featured next week. Songs from the new Afghan Whigs and Slowdive albums having already featured, I have not included them.
The Band : The National
Heartfelt and quietly anthemic indie rockers whose sound takes in alt-country and chamber pop.
The Song : The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness
There’s a bit of Spoon in the song’s disjointed swagger, but the National retain the elegance that’s been their calling card since the Alligator days. Drummer Bryan Devendorf still finds unexpected patterns to propel Berninger’s understated melodies: the sneakers-in-a-dryer wallop of 1980s Grateful Dead might be the only thing the band’s retained from their recent Day of the Dead sessions. Here, they all sound more energized, jutting forward with a slick confidence. “I can’t explain it any other way,” Berninger repeats desperately in his highest register as the band hits the song’s emotional peak. Together, they sound wide awake and ready to fight away the darkness.
