Former Walkmen bassist Peter Matthew Bauer released his debut album, Liberation!, this week via Mexican Summer. It's a lovely record and you can stream the whole thing below and if you need more convincing to buy it. You can also watch a short "infomercial" on the record as well.
As mentioned, Peter plays a NYC record release show on Thursday (6/26) at Rough Trade with AM Mills, and Skyler Skjelset (who is also a member of Peter's band). Tickets are still available but if you'd like to go for free we're giving away a pair. Details on that are below.
After the Rough Trade show, Peter will head off on a proper tour of the Southwest and West Coast. His former bandmate, Hamilton Leithauser, is busy on tour this summer himself. All PMB dates are listed, along with the album stream and the infomercial, below...
