I put together a Genius playlist on my iPhone yesterday with New Order’s “Age of Consent” as the seed. The result was all sorts of awesome: more New Order, some Spoon, Broken Social Scene, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Beirut, Arcade Fire, My Bloody Valentine . . . and the National.
I’ve always really liked the National, but haven’t had many “listen-on-repeat” instances with their songs. Today, however, when revisiting the “Age of Consent” playlist, I just kept hitting repeat once “Apartment Story” come up in the mix. I was hooked. It’s just so divine.
