The slickpop train keeps on keepin' on. Jangling guitars, soothing melodies, soaring harmonies, and music that would have been called soft rock twenty years ago are all the rage right now. New York via Philly post-punk act The Walkmen
have thrown their hat in this ring with the single "Heaven" off their forthcoming album of the same name(out 6/5). There are a lot of bands making this brand of music at the moment, but The Walkmen bring their veteran credentials, and if this doesn't define a sharp production, I don't know what does.
