The Walkmen's new record, Lisbon, isn't out until September 14, but NPR's got a preview of the album with a new song, "Stranded," streaming as of today. "Stranded" features some supremely stately brass parts and frontman Hamilton Leithouser's ever-gritty and soulful vocals. I'm loving it.

The Walkmen will be playing the Showbox at the Market on September 8 with the Helio Sequence. I've seen them in concert many a time and will be at this one as well -- they put on a fabulous live show.
