Notes


℗ & © 2010 Fat Possum LLC


The Walkmen is an indie rock band, with members based in New York City and Philadelphia. The band formed in 2000 with three members from Jonathan Fire*Eater—Paul Maroon (guitar, piano), Walter Martin (organ/bass), and Matt Barrick (drums)—and two from The Recoys, Peter Bauer (bass/organ) and Hamilton Leithauser (vocals, guitar). All but Bauer attended St. Albans in Washington, D.C.

They prefer the sound of vintage musical instruments, particularly the upright piano, and have often recorded at Marcata Recording, a recording studio built in Harlem in 1999 by the three former members of Jonathan Fire*Eater and later relocated to upstate New York.


"It's going to be a good year," so says lead singer, Hamilton Leithauser, and is in essence an exclamation from The Walkmen on "In The New Year" from their latest release. "You & Me," their stellar fourth effort is the most cohesive and impressive release they have attempted yet. This is without a doubt the best collection of songs from this band since their beginning on "Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone." This has been the album I have been waiting for The Walkmen to produce.

Seriously, this album is a true gem. "In The New Year" is just gorgeous and my personal favorite--good, god, the organs! The album starts off gritty and grabs your full attention with the bass heavy "Donde Esta La Playa." "On The Water" is very atmospheric and the vocals just carry the listener higher to bliss until it all explodes in a very exciting ending.
"Red Moon" is a soft song and is just thoroughly beautiful, particularly the use of horns.
"Four Provinces" features some very hypnotic percussions. "Canadian Girl" has some excellent piercing guitar melodies.

This album is successful in many categories. I couldn't find a song I didn't enjoy nor an aspect of The Walkmen's playing that didn't captivate me. The guitars are sonic, droning and blissful. The drums pound, thump and incite my feet to stomp in pattern. The crooning is likely the best Leithauser has shown us yet--very moving. And the bass is just completely soothing. If you haven't been a fan of The Walkmen yet, be prepared to be...
