The Walkmen

The Walkmen - Angela Surf City
The Walkmen - Victory

What we have here is yet another solid release from indie-rock crooners The Walkmen - steeped in sparseness and plinking piano keys and jangling guitars, of course - and for fans, new and old, this one does not disappoint. As with their past records, Lisbon conjures up long, stumbling, drunken walks through the snow in an unfamiliar city (but in a good way, of course), and smoky cellar club arguments with an ex-lover. Or maybe that's just me.

Lisbon will be released on September 14th, via Fat Possum
