The Walkmen were are one of my favorite bands of the past decade. I think I saw them live 7-8 times and they were always great. While they emerged from NYC at the end of the garage/cool New York era and they shared with their peers (Strokes, Interpol) a sharp fashion sense, they were a little more sophisticated and melodic. There was something refreshing old fashioned about them: record an album every 2 years or so, tour, repeat. They never radically changed their sound or used a hot producer, they just made great music. Hamilton Leithauser was the voice of the Walkmen and his mix of crooning and shouting was a key part of their appeal. After announcing a hiatus, Leithauser easily segued into a solo act. His debut solo album is a little more of a late night album (the title is perfect) and you can imagine him performing it in a smoky club where patrons sip Scotch. Walkmen guitarist Paul Maroon plays on the album, so the sound is similar to the Walkmen. A few tracks were produced by Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij. While I'm bummed the Walkmen broke up, Leithauser and Maroon haven't lost a step.
