Brandon Flowers :: "Magdalena"

In honor, or at least in recognition, of the release of Brandon Flowers' debut solo record Flamingo on US shores today, we are sharing a stream of best song on the release, "Magdalena." It is a post-Springsteen anthem (and wouldn't you know, with a proper noun title?) with a final movement that proves that Flowers still has the power to elevate. A key change is the soul of the second half, when after a brief moment of silence Flowers lifts over the houses and pulls the throttle to the sky. The record isn't perfect, but this moment is.
