You & Me OUT NOW On Gigantic Music
New York Times, Live Review (Nate Chinen): “… A terrific new album. “You & Me” signals more than a return to typographically brisk conjunctive clauses: it’s The Walkmen’s sharpest work since “Bows & Arows”, and in some ways an even better record. And the band shows perspective as well as purpose”.
The Onion A.V Club (Grade A) : “This is an album about growing up. When Leithauser sings, “You keep replaying through the days / That have brought you to this place / What happened to you?” in “The Blue Route,” it hits home like a 30th birthday—and as the standout “In The New Year” points out, realizing “It’s all over anyhow” can be invigorating, a way of readying oneself for the next, far more interesting chapter”
Time Out New York: “Though critically praised as one of those “The” bands bands bringing real rock and roll back to the mean streets of a wildly gentrified New York City”.
Rolling Stone: “…stoked to get an early listen to their killer upcoming disk, You & Me which has an equally awesome banger “In the New Year”.
Spin (4 Stars): “Indie rock luminaries craft an intimate sound with new full-length… The album bordering on retro sees singer Hamilton Leithauser’s vocals in a new light, at times channeling those of Robert Plant, and others, Bob Dylan, especially with “In The New Year”.
