Five former members of the late, lamented Jonathan Fire*Eater and their gone-too-soon siblings The Recoys have joined forces as the Walkmen. Deconstructed rock arrangements, spirals of white guitar noise, ambient Wurlitzer distortion, fiery trance-inducing rhythms, haunting vocals: this is the new thing. Beautiful arrangements and beautiful songs.
"The Walkmen should be everyone's favorite new band. . .At once elegant and edgy." -- Village Voice
"The group produces a sound that has at once an enigmatic, funereal quality and a pop shimmer." -- The New Yorker
