The Walkmen release their self-produced third album with their gunsights pointed squarely at the underbelly of mainstream recognition in this country.

With comparisons to The Strokes' sexily laidback, languorous approach to guitarmanship and Bob Dylan's dusty delivery, it's amazing we've not got The Walkmen's names on all our lips.

Vocalist Hamilton Leithauser leads us through several territories, from Latin-tinged Strokes on Brandy Alexander to the full-pelt garage rock of Tenleytown and quirky swoons of Another One Goes By, reminiscent of The Arcade Fire's dynamic approach to songwriting.

The rousing, sonic exploration of recent single Louisiana sets out their stall.
