The Walkmen - "Angela Surf City" from their album, Lisbon. Live at Governor's Island NYC 8/12/2010. Check out other videos from this show as well as our review at http://bigasslens.com.
From the songs we saw the band play last night and the audio streams that have hit the net, it's clear that they've put together another magical set of songs. Sticking with the openness that defined the arrangements of You and Me, the bass/guitar/organ interplay remains perfectly balanced while ace kit man Matt Barrick's signature potent snap continues to impress. And then there's Hamilton's gorgeously full voice - jagged and razor tight enunciations contrast beautifully with his pristine rounded bellow - the perfect narration for this set of songs said to be inspired by time spent in the Portuguese capital.
