Video: The Walkmen, “In The New Year”

August 28, 2008


We've spent quite a bit of time with the new Walkmen record You and Me (out now on Gigantic), mainly because it retains everything that we love about the band: the murky jangle, the yelped vocals, the feeling that we are listening to the musical equivalent of falling off a bar stool in a really well put together outfit. But this time it's all more adult — less coiled rage and more expansive melancholy. So there's nothing as furious as "The Rat" on here, but there is "In the New Year," which might as well be called "Petty Shit Doesn't Upset Me as Much Because I Have Other Stuff to Worry About Now Like Dying Alone."
