The Walkmen: You & Me Benefit Release


The Walkmen's new album You & Me has already been one of our oft-played summer albums. A couple years in the making and already getting a more positive response than their last release, the band's trademark lilting vocals (with appropriate nods to Dylan) and soaring arrangements make a good soundtrack for afternoon sailing or lazy bike rides.

With the news of the $5 digital release benefiting Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center where Luca (a seven-month-old friend of the band) is battling Leukemia, there are zero reasons not to buy the album now.You can do so from Amie Street (a site of note in its own right for the market-based pricing of their music downloads), which will offer the release for the next three weeks.
