MP3: In the New Year by The Walkmen
If you read more than two music blogs then you probably already know that The Walkmen are offering their new album, You and Me, for only $5 via Amie St. What makes this worth writing about is all the proceeds of the purchase goes towards a charity of the band’s choice.
“All donations go to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Luca Vasallo, a friend to the band and a current patient who is seven months old and doing a great job fighting a very difficult disease. This is a very good organization that certainly deserves the attention.”

The band is heading out on tour in August, including a stop in Columbus.
