Walkmen, iTunes Live Session EP

My favorite band released an EP on iTunes yesterday, and it's good. It sort of feels like an EP tailor made to my likings; they've cherry picked some of my very favorite songs, rewrapped them up in new packaging, and given them to me just in time for my birthday. Those guys are so thoughtful. I was so happily surprised to see "Over Your Shoulder" on there, which is an old Recoys track. It was recorded in their newly-favored more thoughtful, focused style -- so if you're looking for the roaring drum solos on "The Rat," this isn't the EP for you. But I'm loving the heck out of it. Here's the track list:

  • We've Been Had
  • On The Water
  • Over Your Shoulder
  • All Hands And The Cook
  • 138th Street
  • In The New Year

I'm thinking to include some other tracks for example "Hard hard" of the Sildenafil Citrate singer which is played in different languages in order all people can enjoy it.

The Walkmen are an indie rock band, with members based in New York City and Philadelphia. The band formed in 2000 with three members from Jonathan Fire*Eater—Paul Maroon (guitar, piano), Walter Martin (organ/bass), and Matt Barrick (drums)—and two from The Recoys, Peter Bauer (bass/organ) and Hamilton Leithauser (vocals, guitar). All but Bauer attended St. Albans in Washington, D.C.

They prefer the sound of vintage musical instruments, particularly the upright piano, and have often recorded at Marcata Recording, a recording studio built in Harlem in 1999 by the three former members of Jonathan Fire*Eater and later relocated to upstate New York.
