The Walkmen - recap of a studio visit
KXT brought The Walkmen in studio on Sept. 19 for a private performance for two lucky auction winners, who also received tickets to their show at the Granada, a copy of their latest album Heaven and a homemade cassette of the album on their very own Sony Walkman plus dinner at Sundown. Here are photos from the Walkmen’s studio appearance and their amazing performance at the Granada Theater. All photos by Jim Riddle.

KXT Presents : The Walkmen!
Please save the date for September 19 as KXT Presents The Walkmen at The Granada Theater! From their website: “It’s been ten years since the Walkmen made their debut album, Everybody Who Pretended To Like Me Is Gone. Ten years since they mixed the lovingly recorded analogue tapes down to the cheapest CD burner they could find. Ten years since lead singer Hamilton Leithauser snapped guitarist Paul Maroon’s arm in a celebratory wrestling match. Ten years since critics attached them to a New York scene they never wanted any part of.
But when Leithauser sings “We Can’t Be Beat,” on the opening track of their new album, he means it, like Cool Hand Luke getting up off the floor for one more round. “The world is ours,” he declares. This time, he may be right.
This spring, the band played a series of 10th anniversary shows that demonstrated how far they have outstripped their peers: two sets over two hours, no filler, rapturously received. In contrast, fellow graduates from New York’s celebrated
rock revival class of ’02 have burned out or faded from view.
The Walkmen are the great New York band of their generation, and in Heaven, they have delivered their third killer album in a row. Although Leithauser argues that “our biggest accomplishment is just being here,” they are making the best music of their career and filling their largest venues yet. Their spot at the top of the bill at May’s Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival, curated by The National, demonstrates the respect in which they are held by the current wave of bands making music in the city.”
