Product Description

Review

"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

Product Description

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.

If New York is a scene again, then the Walkmen are the Television to the Strokes' VU. Just kidding. Well, sort of. The Walkmen are musically sound. Their diverse bag of influences seems to stem from the same record collection the Strokes had (aka VU, Stooges, Television, Pixies) but throw in a little Radiohead, possibly U2 and more of a leaning to 80s pop than 70s raw. But there are definitely twists to keep it interesting. And while we're talking about influences - who cares if a band is derivative? Hey, we're all Post Modernists here, right? There is no originality in rock (there is innovation). Everybody takes what the last guy did and tries to make it better. The Walkmen, like the Strokes, succeed where many, many others fail.

5.0 out of 5 stars innovative sound that still rocks Aug. 14 2001
By Tyler
Format:Audio CD
Walkmen are part of a growing number of of bands in New York City that are taking the Velvet Underground sound, but then going a step further. I listened to this CD and the LP they've released which has three other tracks in Other Music in Soho and felt that it would criminal not to buy such innovative and enjoyable music. I definitely recommend this to anyone who considers themselves a fan of progressive pop/rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic New Band July 27 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I saw The Walkmen play at Brownies in New York a few months ago and was blown away. Their music combines an obvious appreciation of simple melody with a penchant for fancy musical effects to produce four amazingly complex yet accessible songs. Hands down the best new rock band around. I highly recommend this record.
