Walter Martin- "Sing To Me" (featuring Karen O)

Maybe it's because I'm about to be a new Dad, but I love everything about this new project from The Walkmen's Walter Martin. On May 13, Martin will be releasing his first solo album called We're All Young Together. 
 Says Martin ..."I'm calling it a family record and I tried to fill it with warmth and humor because that's the kind of art I like - stuff that makes everyone feel welcome ... "I began to imagine a record I really wanted to hear: something new and original that captured the essence of early rock 'n' roll - innocent but mischievous, romantic but funny, and unabashedly sweet," he says. "It wasn't that I wanted to write songs to suit my new situation as a parent, it was more that parenthood made relevant writing the kind of songs I've always loved most."

Augustines- "Walkabout"

Augustines second full length album hit stores this week. The self titled disc sees the band turning the page from their debut, which dealt with heartbreaking loss and grief. Eric Sanderson told the Wall Street Journal ...“The core of the record is the concept of a walkabout,” ...Going on a journey to find—re-find—yourself after going through a life-changing experience. What do you do when you make it through the other side? When you can confidently say that you’ve worked through the tragedy? When your life actually starts to mirror the belief you have in yourself? 
Although much of the disc is uptempo, my favorite track at the moment is "Walkabout" which feels like the perfect bridge between their debut disc and new LP. Check out the link below for the bands latest tour info and to order the new album.
