The Walkmen often talk about recording twenty or more tracks for a record then cutting the finished product back to ten, which is pretty excruciating for fans out there, but on their latest record Heaven they’ve said they went into the studio, recorded the record’s ten songs, and called it a day. Turns out there are two unused tracks they recorded during those sessions, which the band are now releasing on a limited edition 7″ on tour this fall. “Dance With Your Partner,” with its moody jumps and echo-y guitar, reminds us a little of some of our favorite tracks from the band’s 2008 release You & Me, while “Vermeer ’65” is calmly mournful in a way that’s perfect for autumn. Check out both tracks and try to pick up the 7″ – it’s limited to 1,000 copies.
