The Walkmen take on U2

From The Walkmen’s website:

Hi everyone. Our album is finally done and we’re thrilled with it. We can’t wait to get it out there.

To celebrate the huge amount of hard work that went into it, we’re sharing this embarrassing recording of a spontaneous outburst of frustration that occurred during the very rigorous sessions. It’s our way of blowing off steam I guess. Please forgive us. Producer Phil Ek recorded it on the sly actually.

None of us really remembered it until the last day of mixing when Phil–who by that point had also lost his mind–sat down and patiently mixed it. Enjoy.

Go listen!

Here is an old photo of U2, incase you have either a) forgotten what Young Bono looked like or b) have never seen Young Bono:
