UPDATE: Walter Martin’s show at Normaltown Hall has been canceled, per the venue.
Former Walkmen bassist Walter Martin is currently touring behind We’re All Young Together, his debut solo effort. The record, full of shiny, sunny folk-pop tunes that lope winkingly along, has been billed by many—including Martin, a father of two young kids—as a “children’s album,” but the LP has found just as many fans among the grown-up set. It’s clear these whimsical songs were written from a seasoned, real-life perspective; songs like the wistful Karen O duet “Sing to Me” are vaguely melancholy, even as they sweetly sell all-ages listeners on the concept of everlasting love. Martin’s seated show at Normaltown Hall should prove warm and memorable. Read a Q&A with Martin on Homedrone.
