New York-based The National has been recently receiving widespread critical praise. The 5-man indie band was formed in 1999. In 2001, they released their first album, The National, on their record label, Brassland Records. In 2005, they switched to Beggars Banquet Records and released Alligator, a highly praised album by critics. On May 22, 2007, the band released Boxer, featuring many artists such as Sufjan Stevens and Regina Spektor.
