If you don’t already know, The Black Can Sessions take an Indie band sticks them in the back of a cab with no electronics. They just get their respective acoustic instruments and one take. This week’s Black Cab Session features The Walkmen. Check out the description below:
Ever since ‘Hang on, Siobhan’ was first played to us many years back, this band have been up there in our humble esteem. They have travelled with us on mix tapes, CD players, record players, mini discs, ipods, iphones and now here they are, live in the back of a cab, singing the gorgeous Red Moon from their most recent album ‘You and Me’. Our only regret is that the cabby judged the session perfectly and we arrived back the moment the song ended, with no time for another off-screen tune to wind us down. It was the end of another surreal session – a hasty hand shake in the cold, a hurried ‘thank you so much’, and we were off, pinching ourselves all the way home.
