Listen to The Walkmen’s Free At Noon performance at World Cafe Live (via NPR Music)
From NPR Music:
Though they closed their recording studio in 2006, The Walkmen’s members have continued to make great music. The group recently finished recording its seventh album, Heaven, set for release on June 5. Though the new record is quieter than its predecessors, the band has been performing with a full horn section.
Regardless of the band’s makeup, The Walkmen’s sound is characterized by its simplicity — urgent guitars, driving drums and, of course, the voice of Hamilton Leithauser, who seems to bellow, howl and croon simultaneously.
