The Walkmen – You and Me (2008)

You & Me, what I think is their 4th album, is a solid and complex collection of really inspired songwriting. Only recently have I heard of this band, and I find that it takes a good 4 – 5 listens of the album to really get into it. I listen only to a few of the tracks of their previous albums for comparison, and I think in You and Me, the band is in their most bare, melancholy, and oddly laid-back sounding.

It’s romantic and utterly celebratory. You & Me wouldn’t be categorized as vintage or old, but would certainly evoke feelings of nostalgia and wishful thinking to any listener.
