Hamilton Leithauser, frontman for the Walkmen, has an amazing voice. The Walkmen are like a cleaned-up, take-em-home-to-meet-mom version of the Strokes even tho I know that probably isn't a fair comparison. I also feel like I could somehow connect their musical influence to Billy Joel but that sucks and maybe its just because they're from the East Coast and they have a keyboardist. They also seem like they'd be real mellow to hang out with or play a boat party if you had a decent sized boat and a bunch of friends to come aboard and rock out. The Walkmen were really fucking good. The crowd that collects at the Belly Up definitely puts out a weird vibe...people almost seem too nice. Creepy.
