First Listen From the Walkmen

NPR is streaming the first song we've heard from the Walkmen's upcoming album, 'Lisbon,' out Sept. 14 on Fat Possum. I hope you aren't searching for something like "The Rat". "Stranded" is a slow burner that's horn heavy and sounds right out of a funeral march along some side street in New Orleans. Weird and kinda cool. Here's a little bit more about the song and the album from lead singer Hamilton Leithauser and the label. As Michael Nesmith would say, "and the hits just keep on comin'."
