The Walkmen - "Tenley Town"



This just goes to show that you can't judge a book by it's cover, or in the case of The Walkmen, you can't judge a new album by it's first single. It seemed before that the mass consensous of opinions stemming from the first single "Louisiana" were disappointment and a dread that perhaps The Walkmen had fallen short on A Hundred Miles Off. However, all these things, the disappointment and dread, are very quickly washed away with one listen through what is sure to be one of the finest albums of 2006. This track is raw and punchy, this track is phenomenal, this track is the new "The Rat."

[MP3]: The Walkmen :: Tenley Town
This song is everything that "Louisiana" wasn't. It's got the raw feel that made Bows + Arrows such an arresting listen. The drumming is in your quick and loud, and everytime the rolls hit you in the face it just feels better and better. Leithhauser's trademark yell/croon sounds incredible here, sometimes even drowning out the sharp buzzing and ringing of electric guitar. This song beats the crap out of you and then kicks you when you're down.

Preorder A Hundred Miles Off from Amazon.com

i'm pretty sure this is actually "Tenley Town" becuase he says "This Job Is Killing Me" on the track before it, plus the tracklisting was supposed to be in that order. the order was messed up on the leak.

Why is everyone hatin' on Louisiana? I think it's great. I don't mind the horns and I don't mind that it doesn't sound like The Rat.

i got nothing against louisiana, its one of my favorite from the album. what i was saying is that, it turned a lot of people off and lowered their expectations for the new album, which it shouldnt have, cause well, the new album is incredible.
