A Hundred Miles Off
Label: Record Collection Music
The Walkmen have toned down their guitar and organ rumble and in the process of relaxing their former garage stance, they discovered a raspy Dylan-esque drawl. The attitude of "Lost in Boston" is as much cranky defiant folk as directionless New York punk ennui. While their third disc makes less of a racket, there's still plenty of unrestrained vehemence to be found.
