The Walkmen - In the New Year
On September 16, 2008, The Walkmen will release their fifth full-length album, You & Me. We here at betterPropaganda can assure you that it will be one of the best records of 2008. Although the band has released a string of solid albums, You & Me offers a more mature sound in which lead singer Hamilton Leithauser fully embraces his role as indie rock's Frank Sinatra. His swooping vocals are used more appropriately, constantly fluctuating in intensity as if randomly accenting certain words or phrases, similar to the vocals on 2002's Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone. Give "In the New Year" a listen and reacquaint yourself or discover the power of Leithauser's voice.
