THE WALKMEN > You & Me

You & Me marks The Walkmen’s return to classic form, with an unforgettable batch of slow-burning songs that should be on the jukebox of every dive bar in America. It’s woozy, intimate, ethereal ballads are somber, blue, and downbeat, but with the intensity, urgency, and energy of a great live band.Label: GIGANTIC

You & Me marks The Walkmen’s return to classic form, with an unforgettable batch of slow-burning songs that should be on the jukebox of every dive bar in America. It’s woozy, intimate, ethereal ballads are somber, blue, and downbeat, but with the intensity, urgency, and energy of a great live band. Whether hiding behind the dense, ragamuffin, instrumentation on “Seven Years of Holidays,” piping organ and chiming guitar on “In the New Year,” or a warm sea of piano and horns on “Red Moon,” lead singer Hamilton Leithauser’s throaty, worn out rasp has never sounded so convincing. The weight of his elegant confessions goes down nice and easy with a glass of something strong and makes You & Me the perfect album to pass out to after a long night.
