Good For You & Good For Me

The Walkmen's You & Me keeps it real. Of course the formula changes a bit each time; this is more restrained than A Hundred Miles Off, and unlike their earlier work, Hamilton seems more confident in his approach and actually wants you to understand the lyrics. While that makes for less drunken stumbling and piano key tinkling, instead you get more time to appreciate everything else under the surface that separates The Walkmen's sound from anyone on the island. Enjoy "On the Water" via Pitchfork TV.

Buy it at Insound!

new album is good but they've definitely slipped live.
