First Impression of New Walkmen LP


raptoravatar:

In ten years; when ”Indie” has cracked the last band sticker from it’s coccoon and emerged as Adult Contemporary without sex, drama, or the possibility of good lyrics; I will debate with friends whether “You & Me” by The Walkmen or Fleet Foxes’s s/t was the point where it all went wrong.  Not that both aren’t melodically pleasing feats of craft, but that they’re such non-entities.

I haven’t heard that Walkmen record yet, and Fleet Foxes was never going to be anything I considered an entity. I’m basically re-blogging because I miss Jonathan Fire-Eater.
