iTunes Review

A collaborative triumph from two giants of New York indie rock. I Had A Dream That You Were Mine sees The Walkmen frontman and former Vampire Weekend multi-instrumentalist/producer unite for an album of rollicking rock and doo-wop (“Rough Going”), haunting folk (“In a Black Out”), and iridescent pop (“1959”)—all covered in flourishes and fingerprints only they can leave.

So Genuine

This guy sounds like he just walked right out of another era. His music has a mind, heart, and soul - I heard it immediately. Wow. I hope he does well. This is truly beautiful. I haven't heard something this genuine to my ear and heart in a while. Very nice.

It's just a fun and touch album. The close, 1959, featuring Angel Deradoorian (AD, as I will call her if I'm pressed for time), is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I can't recommend this album enough.
