The Walkmen - 'The House You Made' [Track Of The Day]
We love 'Heaven' by The Walkmen, but in an odd way their attention to detail and immaculate quality control means the b-side to their limited edition 7" is worryingly close to dominating proceedings. Hardly an issue to be concerned with, but more of a 405 pat on the back.
The a-side also happens to be the title-track from their forthcoming album, which is released on June 4th via Bella Union. If you want to hear more from the album before its release, we suggest 'Southern Heart', 'Heartbreaker' and 'We Can't Be Beat'.
