The National

Brooklyn based, via Cincinnati, this quintet is often compared to Wilco, Interpol, and other prominent indie bands. Their lyrics are notably strong, and their music is ever-improving. The fact that there are two sets of brothers in this band is somewhat interesting. Full lengths are: The National, Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers, Alligator, Boxer and High Violet. The National is: Matt Berninger (Vocals), Aaron Dessner (guitars, bass), Bryce Dessner (guitar), Scott Devendorf (guitar; bass), and Bryan Devendorf (drums).
