The Walkmen – “We Can’t Be Beat”

By Corban Goble / May 8, 2012 - 10:45 am

The latest song to emerge from the Walkmen’s upcoming Heaven is the downtempo, penultimate “We Can’t Be Beat,” a track that puts Hamilton Leithauser up front (and Fleet Fox Robin Pecknold on backing vox) with minimal accompanying instrumentation. Leithauser then leads the song into a rousing, joyous jangle of a climax. Stream it below.

Heaven is out 5/29 on Fat Possum. Read a recent Progress Report with the Walkmen here. Other songs we’ve heard from Heaven: “Heaven,” “Heartbreaker” and “Southern Heart.”
