Background: Like most music I find myself listening to, I became aware of the National by listening to a song of theirs and then typing in the lyrics into a search engine to discover the band itself. Its an unusual but perfected method of mine for finding new artists and their music.

The Night Before - James - A very catchy and well though out album. Would be better enjoyed by somebody who was already a James fan as it is experimental.
