The Walkmen drummer Matt Barrick, ACL 2005.
My apologies for the abbreviated first part. It was a late night last night, and I’m out of sorts without my computer. Sad, really, how dependent I (we) have become. But that’s a story for another day.
To make up for that, here’s the rest of the show, from Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club generously Webcast by NPR and offered as a full download here. I’d never thought much about this until I read NPR’s introduction to the group: “Bob Dylan meets indie rock in the music of The Walkmen.” The more I listened to this show, the more I can hear echoes of Dylan in Hamilton Leithauser’s voice, sometimes eerily so.
Anyway, if you’re concerned about the individual mp3s vs. the entire download, there really wasn’t too much chatter in between songs.
