Show Review

There's a quiet calm that should descend over the viewer as The Walkmen's newest video for "While I Shovel The Snow" cycles through. With serene gusts of hollow guitar work and Hamilton Leithauser's semi-strained soul, the song is one of Lisbon's iciest and most skeletal moments. Images of Hamilton and the band caught up in some beautiful snow globe of a world, quietly pacing the Brooklyn banks of the East River are a nice visual touch. "No life like the snow life", indeed. "While I Shovel the Snow" was directed by Jake Davis.

Artist Bio

The Walkmen is an indie rock band, with members based in New York City and Philadelphia. The band formed in 2000 with three members from Jonathan Fire*EaterPaul Maroon (guitar, piano), Walter Martin (organ/bass), and Matt Barrick (drums)and two from The Recoys, Peter Bauer (bass/organ) and Hamilton Leithauser (vocals, guitar). All but Bauer attended St. Albans in Washington, D.C.

They prefer the sound of vintage musical instruments, particularly the upright piano, and have often recorded at Marcata Recording, a recording studio built in Harlem in 1999 by the three former members of Jonathan Fire*Eater and later relocated to upstate New York.
