The Walkmen – In the New Year (music video)

only the jason molina is writing lyrics in the same ballpark as this guy. ‘weird that he never gets any praise as a ‘writer.’ this is as close to a non-wrist-slit-y song as there is on the great, sad Walkmen alb of old 2008. big drums, big organ, no? why isn’t this selling more records than Coldplay?

    Andrew — sorry to miss you there. Lex — I would have done that one or “Unhappy Girl” if they were available, of course. Or the “Crystal Ship”.
