Official & Live Videos

What Up Yo.
These guys are amazing. This is one of my favorite songs.

Pure, raw and honest...performed with ultra passion.

This track is off of 2004's "Bows And Arrows" by The Walkmen.

Here, in the black and white official video for the song, you can see, hear and feel the bands drive.

Watch The drummer...Matt Barrick's arms man...dear lord he's amazing.

I'm a master air drummer...master baby...and I nearly knocked myself unconscious performing air drums to this song during a particularly intense imaginary concert we were playing at Madison Square Garden (Starbucks parking lot) while I was drumming to this song in the car while composing this post and reviewing the videos.

And Hamilton Leithauser on vocals is singing like he's on top of a mountain, singing to a girl two thousand miles away.

"Can't you hear me now...
I'M
BEATING
ON
THE
WALL!!!"

Below the official video is another video of them performing The Rat live on Conan O’Brien's Late Show.

All fucking heart man.

Merry Christmas.
