I believe they toured with Interpol in the early days, actually. Maybe I'm thinking of someone else.

I'm with you though, this might be my overall favorite Walkmen album. Really excited to see them with Beach House in a few weeks. Hopefully they don't get too screwed on stage time considering Beach House is the headliner.

I agree with all of this. I add new songs to my "favorites" list every time I listen to it. Already one of my favs this year.

So this might be my favorite album this year. It's close, but it's definitely in the top 2 or 3 for me.

They were fantastic as usual at Osheaga in Montreal today. The Fleet Foxes' Skyler Skjelset joined them and has, apparently, been replacing the regular bassist for the last 2 weeks.

What is the best album to start with these guys, in your opinion?

The newest album is actually my overall favorite, so in this case, pulling a "friggin' Cobbler" and starting there might be appropriate. It's really good, might still be my personal favorite album so far this year.

You may want to wait for some others' opinion on the subject though.

Is that Heaven? I actually pulled a Friggin' Cobbler and listened to it already : lol:
I wasn't too keen on it my first listen through but I always like to give them a couple of tries...

I'd go with You & Me. Still my favourite and the one that really got me into them.

Thanks for the heads up on the Conan thing yesterday, Mofo. I actually remembered to watch

Not sure if you saw in the link, but they played We Can't Be Beat after it ended. You can watch it in the link.

This.

Or, if you want something completely different, something heavier, go with Bows + Arrows.
