Surf Bash

I spent lunch awash in the sounds of the Walkmen and I think we need to label their sound.

My nominees:

Surf Bash: Like fields of surf rock with more cymbal crashing.
City Surf 2010: Surf rock made more gritty and whiny, produced post 2000.

If we get enough submissions in the comments I'll post a poll and we can vote.

Volatile Nighttime Stroll Rock: - Like a midnight walk with the aggressive intrusions of street lights and sirens.

Sandbox Rock: Energetic, playful and dramatic music with an occasional dip into dirty and chaotic jostling.

Jangle-billy Tin Punk: Sounds like what you'd get if Peter Buck jammed with Frank Black, Dick Dale and Scott Asheton inside a studio made completely out of metal (to get that weird tinney sound, of course).

The Garage Punk Circus:1 part hammond organ + 1 part driving drums + two parts fast guitar strumming + 2 parts primal, yet tuneful yell-singing. Add horns, liberally. Mix together and let simmer. Serve hot with cymbal crashes, upright piano.

I don't have any suggestions, but I just want to say that I am (probably) seeing the Walkmen (and AA Bondy) in six weeks and I'm excited about it.

I've never thought of them in terms of surf but I spose I can see it now. If I had to vote I like Volatile Nighttime Stroll Rock. It's like a guy with a permanent chip on his shoulder trying to relax. Or, yeah, a stroll with an edge. Funny.
