Top 10 Manchester Orchestra Songs

Who doesn't like a good old-fashioned Top 10 list? It's just the right length, because few people care about #11-whatever. Planning on making this the first installment in a series of generic "Top 10 Songs by Artist" lists. Are you hyped? First we have Manchester Orchestra, indie-rock darlings who just released their smooth, glistening LP entitled "The Million Masks of God". If you're looking to get into these guys, here are 10 songs you can check out to see if they might be for you. Single-sentence descriptions to cater to the short-on-time.
10Manchester Orchestra
I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child

"Sleeper 1972" - A hushed, haunting ballad about a vision Andy had with themes of death abound.
9Manchester Orchestra

"Pale Black Eye" - String-swept rock song about the lows of marriage in which Hull admits he doesn't love his wife as much as he used to.
8Manchester Orchestra
I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child

"I Can Barely Breathe" - Raw rock moment reckons with life, death, and faith.

Mean Everything to Nothing

"I Can Feel a Hot One" - A heart-wrenching ballad about a dream Andy had which entails the death of his wife in a car crash, where only their unborn child survives.
6Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile to the Surface

"Lead, SD" - A propulsive indie-rock tune featuring layered melodies/screams which reach a fever pitch when Andy sings about snow-covered graves.
5Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile to the Surface

"The Alien" - A piano-laden reprieve whose gorgeous atmosphere belies its suicidal tendencies.
4Manchester Orchestra
Simple Math

"Simple Math" - Lush and orchestral moment which follows the story line of fictional affair, all while bringing into question everything we believe about ourselves.
3Manchester Orchestra
I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child

"Colly Strings" - Impassioned, highly climactic song about the struggles one endures to find true love.
2Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything to Nothing

"The River" - Endearingly raw, sang/shouted prayer to God with all sorts of existential ramifications.
1Manchester Orchestra
A Black Mile to the Surface

"The Silence" - Towering curtain-call that laments Andy's cursed, cyclical ancestry and sees him swear to hold his newborn daughter above all that darkness.
