Judging from the first advance tracks, some of us are already getting used to the idea that “ Heaven”, the new album by The Walkmen, is going to be rather upbeat. But now that “ We Can’t Be Beat” has surfaced, we may have to change their minds again. The rhythm and intensity decrease, in favour of a more solemn tone, embracing a brand of pastoral folk in the vein of Fleet Foxes. After all, it's Phil Ek at the helm. Due out on 5th June.
