Stream Both Sides of the New Walkmen 7" | News | Pitchfork

Quote:
On November 6, the Walkmen will follow their recent record Heaven with a new 7" single featuring tracks recorded during the Heaven sessions. "Dance With Your Partner" b/w "Vermeer '65" is out via Fat Possum in a limited edition of 1,000. Both tracks are previously unreleased, and the first 100 attendees of the band's Terminal 5 show in New York during CMJ on October 18 will receive free copies.
Hopefully these two songs will be available to purchase digitally as well.

It pains me to say that I have not given nearly enough attention to their new album this year.

Well, you should. It's one of my favorites, possibly my most listened to album this year.

The Walkmen Make Up for Cancelled Show With Spaghetti and Meatballs and Bad Cover Songs | News | Pitchfork



Quote:
The many bands currently dealing with Hurricane Sandy show cancellations might want to consider taking a page out of the Walkmen's book. Today on Facebook, the band shared details on how they will creatively make up for an October 6 Philadelphia show cancelled "for some dumb reason". (Thanks to Nina Corcoran for the tip.)

The Walkmen will prepare a dinner of spaghetti, meatballs, and "cheap canned beer" for fans with ticket stubs for the cancelled show, to be enjoyed prior to the just-announced makeup show, January 11 at Union Transfer. The meal will be served while the band soundchecks "half-assed versions" of songs like Coldplay's "The Scientist" and "Fix You" and Living Colour's "Cult of Personality".

A representative for the band confirms that yes, this is for real, and not a joke.

According to frontman Hamilton Leithauser, who posted the above image of himself, a group of notable rockers will be there to help dole out the pasta. He names such potential servers as Fleet Foxes, Kurt Vile, the War on Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Mazarin, and Blood Feathers, "none of whom have been asked." He notes, "there's a very good chance that none of these people may show up." And if you don't have the cancelled ticket stub, never fear: "You can just write in and plead your case," Leithauser writes. "It's not THAT sweet a deal, so the restrictions are sort of lax. Casual attire."

"We realize it's a headache for everyone in Philadelphia who bought tickets to the cancelled October show," he wrote. "And we've come to understand it's never a good idea to tick off a large group of our neighboring Philadelphians."

More details will be shared soon. Leithauser asked fans to "RSVP to this Facebook page," which doesn't really work since the message was posted as a photo. "This is my first Facebook post so I honestly don't know if that's even possible," he wrote. "See you there!"

well that really sucks. i had no idea about that. doesn't really sound like they're close at all... but at the same time, full props for them going out in this way as opposed to the Verve route which was/is/always will be a farce.

then i think Heaven is the perfect send off for them, one of their very last singles. Probably now my favourite track. Very U2-ish for all the right reasons, as far as I'm concerned.

(i can't seem to make up my mind whether to use proper punctuation or not, my apologies.)
