Louisiana

By |

The Walkmen have a theory about their writing "Louisiana," the lead track for their third full-length, A Hundred Miles Off: "When you listen to the album over and over again, you're not going to hate the first song," lead singer Hamilton Leithauser said. They designed "Louisisana" to be a horn-aplenty party song in the vein of the Kinks, but somewhere out there exists another version. "Then we did a dub reggae version that was a little weird," Leithauser said. "It was all King Tubby-d out. We never made it out of the studio with that one. I hope it resurfaces as a B side some day."
