Best of 2008: #6 - The Walkmen: You & Me

This could very nearly turn into a "Best surprises of 2008" list, but actually it's been these great surprises that have actually made 2008 such an interesting year for music. The Walkmen have long been a band I've had an interest in, yet "Bows + Arrows" didn't float my boat as much as it did for others. The band returned this year following on from a covers record with 'You & Me', and sounds like a band that are really comfortable in their sound, and have accepted aging in the process. Tracks like 'Canadian Girl' and 'Long Time Ahead of Us' ooze class and maturity, and with 'In the New Year', the band have easily created one of the great anthems of the year, and something I hope to hear plenty of this festive season.
