The Walkmen - Heaven
I think everyone has those bands that hit them at a key developmental point in their life, when they really don’t know what’s going on or about to happen but as long as they have good music, everything seems like it’s going to be alright. The Walkmen are definitely one of those bands for me. I am not ashamed to have first heard of them in a Saturn commercial; however, ten years later, Saturn is no longer around but The Walkmen keep churning out quality albums, full of both energy and a surprisingly comfortable world-weariness. Their seventh album Heaven is out June 5 on Fat Possum Records. Enjoy.
