The Walkmen – ‘Heaven’

Moody new wave with aplomb

Of course, when ‘The Rat’ is your high-water mark, nothing’s ever going to sound as exciting again. But the best NY rock’n’roll band of the past decade who aren’t The Strokes are back to their best, channelling moody new wave with aplomb rather than reverting to the mariachi meandering of 2010’s ‘Lisbon’.
