The National - The Geese of Beverly Road (live)
This song, he explains, is set in the neighborhood of Brooklyn where he and Bryce Dessner lived during the recording of Alligator, a place called Ditmas Park.
"It's a beautiful neighborhood that feels more like Savannah, Georgia than Brooklyn," he said. "The houses are all free-standing with nice yards and wrap-around porches."
"I was sitting outside one night watching a bunch of kids running up and down Beverly setting off car alarms. The song is theirs."
