When I used to go out, I would know everyone that I saw...



So there is this band called The Walkmen. They are from New York, and they rock. And they are one of the only "indie rock" bands out there that doesn't steal things from the Talking Heads. They have a new album coming out next month, which is taking a tremendously long time to leak. If they improve as much as they did between their first album (Everyone Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone) and their second (one of my favorite albums, Bows + Arrows), then A Hundred Miles Off is going to be a monster. Here's "Louisiana," off the new album, ripped from their myspace:

The Walkmen- "Louisiana"

A horn section + The Walkmen = awesome.

And some older tracks, best played with the volume knob at 11:

The Walkmen- "The Rat"

The Walkmen- "Wake Up"
