The Walkmen Usher “In The New Year” On Conan

On Inauguration Night, Hamilton dedicated this song and its “I know that it’s true, it’s gonna be a good year”s to President Barack Obama. A week later the tune’s falling-downstairs groove makes a good platform for Ham to cock his head back and croon, and intensely stare down the cameras, over at 30 Rock. And for once, when Conan comes out to congratulate the band, he has someone to look at in the eye. Watch it at nbc.com (click Chapter 5 for their performance).
