We're still listening to "Alexandra," Hamilton Leithauser's first solo single after the breakup of the Walkmen, so we're psyched that the latest tune he's offering up, "In the Shallows," will back "Alexandra" on a forthcoming 7". It's a lovely song, albeit one that won't make the final cut of his forthcoming record Black Hours - and if you dug the Walkmen's knack for making songs to drink to, you won't be disappointed here. What with those layered guitar and xylophone sounds backing up Leithauser's signature yowl, it's a perfect jam to soundtrack all your inevitable summer day-drinking. Check it out - Black Hours is out June 3.
