The beloved yet publically underappreciated Walkmen seemingly broke up this winter. Or, well, they're pulling a Kiss in 1978—frontman Leithauser, bassist-organist Walter Martin and organist-bassist Peter Bauer are all releasing solo albums within weeks of each other this spring. Naturally, as he is the voice, Leithauser carries a large portion of the Philly–New York band's DNA. His raspy garage-soul howl and bespoke crooner image is in full evidence on "Alexandra," the first single from his Black Hours. Members of Vampire Weekend, the Shins, Fleet Foxes, Dirty Projectors, and, indeed, the Walkmen chipped in on the solo record. This show is part of the Tomorrow Never Knows festival.
