A Very Special Music Tuesday

The Walkmen are 5 New Yorkers who have been playing rock music since they were 10 years old. Over the years, and in their many ensembles, they’ve experimented with punk, noise, a lot of “garage” sounds, ska, and rock. Oh and they're awesome. Not just because their music rocks but also because they're generous and caring individuals - something that is becoming more and more rare in the music industry.

Right now you can buy their brand new pre-released album on Amie Street with ALL proceeds going to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vassallo, a beautiful 7 month old baby boy who is bravely battling leukemia. To learn more about Luca visit the Love For Luca blog.

And to hear more from The Walkmen, visit their Myspace page here. Listen to In The New Year. It's a winner.
