The National Splits - Grab the Bottle and Run to the HiIl

Country-influenced dreamy pop songs from Illinois reminiscent of Uncle Tupelo, Byrds, Gram Parsons, etc. Acoustic guitar, slightly twangy vocals and psychedelic organ on a couple songs. Good!

PICKS: A1, A2, B3

A1. dreamy love song
A2. somewhat alt-country, small town summer story
B1.Slow, sad country song – FCC – "fuck"
B2. short, mid-tempo, organ, includes the lyrics
"ghettoblasting Peter Gabriel"
B3. o-so-cute short love song about pocketwatches and alarm clocks
