This week the Walkmen released their new record, You & Me, with a very non-traditional concept behind the proceeds that should flow in from it. The band is handing over the cash that comes in to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in honor of a little seven month old they know who is battling leukemia. We have a review of the new record here . For those wanting a little more Walkmen, Daytrotter has a couple songs the band recorded recently up for free download. Of the four tracks available, I'd recommend "I'm Your Son," a lonesome, mournful number with frontman Hamilton Leithauser sounding beaten down as he sings "I'm up the river, that's where all the work gets done." -- Jennifer Maerz
