The Walkmen home
The Walkmen's first album Bows and Arrows was loved by fans of brooding post-punk - especially for the stomping single 'The Rat' - but it hardly set the world alight. Now people are starting to sit up and take notice. Latest album Lisbon is a gem of a record and has got more than one critic breaking out into superlatives. Hamilton Leithauser's voice has become a fragile yet angry croon and along with the intricate percussion, piano, organ and guitars, it's pretty devastating. Listen out for the single 'Juveniles' and if you like it, buy your tickets now. This is going to be good.
