Currently Digging: The Walkmen – Lisbon

As far as posting goes, I’m pretty late to the game on this one.  I suppose December serves as the month I catch up on all the good stuff I didn’t get a chance to mention before, or only mentioned in passing.

The Walkmen’s track record is impeccable, and Lisbon is no exception.  The group is as gloomy as ever, and the slightly progressive approach to their signature sound pays off.  I am looking forward to hearing the new material live at Stubb’s in March.  Below is a sampling of some of my favorite tracks from the new record, epic and grandiose and depressing and brilliant all at once.

The Walkmen – Angela Surf City

The Walkmen – Stranded

The Walkmen – Victory
