The Walkman’s You and Me their best in years? I do think so!

I guess somebody–major labels perhaps–thought the Walkman would be the next U2, like a WIlliamsburg-based, used to be Jonathanfireater-kind of U2. Alas no. But their new album YOU & ME may not be released by their former major label parent; however it’s really fucking good. Reminds of me of Everyone Who Pretended to Like Me is Gone, that excellent early 00’s indie label debut delight that came out under the radar during the Brooklyn-scene music hype of the time. So stream You & Me for free here. Official release date is, oh yes, TODAY! And apparently the Walkman appeared yesterday on…Fox News? (Quick backstory–once my friend Sonia and I semi-stalked the Walkman when they played SUNY Purchase in 2004. I tried to get my friend to lure lead singer Hamilton to our dorms because, well, uh, she’s Asian and wears vintage clothing and they looked like they would be into girls like that. Alas, it did not work.)
