Hear Walter Martin Debut Two New Songs, Discuss The Walkmen’s “Extreme Hiatus” On Soundcheck

My favorite song from among the many post-Walkmen solo projects so far is Walter Martin’s Karen O duet “Sing To Me.” So I’m happy to report that Martin debuted two more songs from his upcoming kid-friendly album We’re All Young Together on the WNYC radio show Soundcheck yesterday. “Rattlesnakes,” an easygoing folk song with a silly sense of humor, kicks in around 1:19, followed by the “dudes-only” version of “Sing To Me” at 11:13 and the other new song, another lighthearted and twangy tune called “Imagination,” at 14:55. At the 10-minute mark, Martin also fields a question about whether the Walkmen are actually on “extreme hiatus” now after playing a concert at a concert during NBA All-Star Weekend just two months after their farewell show: “Oh yeah, we definitely are. But if somebody offers us a fun show to do, we’ll do it, probably.” Listen to the full show below.
