    One of my favorites of the last decade. I still haven't seen them live.

    The Walkmen are that rare breed of band that never seems to get any more or less popular. They just kind of...coast. They've played the Fonda on each of their last two tours, here's to hoping they really explode with this album.
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)
    10/01 - King Crimson - Orpheum
    10/10 - Thurston Moore/Sebadoh - Echoplex (?)

    Neither of the above songs have me very excited for the new album. They're not bad, they're just very middle of the road to me. They lack the passion that so many of the band's past material had, and this already feels like the masses-friendly album that is going to make the band huge.

    Loving this retrospective look at the Walkmen five.
    http://pitchfork.com/news/46657-vide...alkmen-heaven/
    I remember having previously seen/watched a number of the photos/clips shown in the video. It feels peculiar, though oddly comforting, to know that I've been closely following this band through my late teen years and twenties. I hope they will continue to make new music for many years to come.

    P.S. They will be perfoming on Fallon on 6/5. I believe Michael Fassbender will be the guest interviewee for Fallon that night. Double win.

    Disappointing, but I'd rather have them call it quits than put out a mediocre album if their hearts aren't in to it.

    I just came in here to post that, but of course you've got it covered. Great article, makes me very nostalgic for those guys. Can't believe I saw them for the first time almost ten years ago already.

    While it's a bummer to see them go, I doubt it's for good. They'll be back in 8-10 years, and be a subheadliner and every will say OMGZ my favorite band ever from the 2000's is back. ahhh, must go!

    That article is good, but in a heartbreaking way. I hope we don't have to wait 8-10 for them to be back. Seeing them last Fall was perhaps my favorite show of the year... so electric.
