12. The National - City Middle (2005)

The National are possibly the most under-rated band in modern indie rock. Throughout their career they've made consistently great, elegant albums and their 2005 release Alligator was one of their best. This song, which is very slow and tense and features some recurring themes from earlier in the album, is a brilliant setup for the next track on the album, "Mr. November," which is one of the harder songs the band has ever written.
