Driving Music: The Walkmen

Discovered this band when a clip of their song "The Blue Route" was featured in an episode of BBC's Whites, a very promising comedy set around Alan Davies as an executive chef. Sadly, it was cancelled after the first six-show season, er, series.

Anyway, that was five years ago or so, and The Walkmen are still among my favorite currently recording bands. This is their best album, in my opinion, though it isn't a popular one--most prefer Lisbon or Bows and Arrows. Those are certainly worth a listen, too.

"If Only it Was True" really gets to me every time. It's the last track on this record.
