The Walkmen "Heartbreaker" (live video)

The Walkmen "Heartbreaker" (live video)
There's still no word on when the Walkmen will drop their next apparently "relaxed" LP, but a live video has surfaced of the band playing new tune "Heartbreaker." While details of the upcoming disc are scant, chances are pretty high the track is one of the 18 songs the band are including on the record.

Captured earlier this month at a sold-out show at Chicago's Metro that celebrated the band's tenth anniversary, the concert clip finds the outfit showcasing the leisurely sock hop slow jam; Hamilton Leithauser fittingly offers up some lover-lorn musings on the understated number.

There's a nervous, uncouth energy to the skittered guitar battle between Paul Maroon and Peter Bauer, but Matt Barrick's reserved rhythms suggest the group's keeping their proposed laid-back direction in check.
