The Walkmen – In the New Year

Hey, Happy New Year. Here’s a great track from NYC’s The Walkmen about just this kind of thing.

These guys are one helluva band. Good writing, amazing energy. This is the stuff you listen to when you’re in your late 30s but still connect to the drive of all that old punk stuff you blasted when you were 21. I love that this band harnesses that sound, but the songs are stories about the things that you encounter later in life.

    those little coenrr store/bodega/grocery/convenient store things are one of the BEST parts about NYC. we have a couple in our neighborhood in jersey city, and it’s fantastic. they know us by name now, they always have fresh (and cheap!) produce and flowers, and always seem to put a smile on my face! i’m not sure if you just took the photo because of the pumpkins, but if you haven’t taken advantage of those places, you should start :)cheers to a BEAUTIFUL fall so far in NYC! my neighborhood is full of decorated stoops too! i just love it.
