According to the savvy detective work from the good people of The Walkmen’s official forum, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic played another new song from Lisbon. This time, “Blue As Your Blood” (a song originally called “Sky Above/CJ by fans”) got an early spin. MBC posted a stream of the show and someone ripped the new song for all of us to hear. Gotta love technology.
“Stranded” set the bar high, and I didn’t know if anything could top it. Well, “Blue As Your Blood” just may have. It weaves in and out of majestic beauty with every passing second. The band is able to create such a distinctive mood/tone. It really has become second nature for them.
Lisbon is shaping up to be a worthy contender to You & Me. The Walkmen are really cementing their place in all of our hearts.
