One last reminder: The National’s Boxer came out yesterday. If you’re going to buy and love and cherish one album this year, it’s the one. Think I’m being hyperbolic? I still don’t think anyone’s put a record better than Alligator in the last three years. But if you need more convincing, I reviewed it for the Daily Bruin. (And yes, I’m obviously aware that “Ada” isn’t supposed to be written in all caps. Talk to my copy editors.)
Sufjan plays piano on “Ada,” by the way. Yes, that Sufjan.
