Title: Columbia House Party: 24. The Walkmen – Bows + Arrows (2004)
Date: April 13, 2020
Original Source: Columbia House Party
Synopsis: In the 24th episode of Columbia House Party, we break down The Walkmen’s Bows + Arrows, an unlikely choice for an episode of The OC and a somewhat unlikely non-success story in general.
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy break down The Walkmen’s 2004 album Bows + Arrows. As The OC Month continues, The Walkmen represent an interesting and often self-defeating secondary character in the indie rock boom and an unlikely Bait Shop performer. They’re also emblematic of the Meet Me In The Bathroom-era New York rock scene, dripping in cool while made up of the pieces of other, disbanded groups. Find out more about the enormity of The Rat, the overall excellent use of music as a world-builder, character-developer, and story-teller in The OC, and which Canadian rock band one host initially confused The Walkmen with on this week’s podcast.
