Watch The Walkmen play “Canadian Girl” live at Sun Studio (‘You & Me’ deluxe reissue out this week)
The Walkmen's terrific fourth album, 2008's You & Me, is getting a deluxe reissue this week via Marcata Records. Retitled You & Me (Sun Studio Edition), it's a double LP set with the original album spread across three sides of vinyl, with the fourth side featuring recordings from the era made at Memphis' legendary Sun Studio.
The Sun Studio sessions were originally made for PBS, and feature the band playing with a local horn section that included Ben Cauley of the Bar-Kays, Jason Yasinsky, Jeremy Shrader, Sean Murphy, and Paul Brandenburg. You can watch The Walkmen play You and Me highlight "Canadian Girl" from that Sun Studio session, along with "Louisinana," below.
The Walkmen called it quits in 2013, with most of the members pursuing solo projects. Former Walkmen bassist Peter Matthew Bauer will release a new solo album, Flowers, in September.
