With each new successful solo album it’s getting less accurate to say that Hamilton Leithauser is best known as the frontman for the Walkmen. His 2014 Sinatra-inspired solo debut, Black Hours, featured contributions from members of the Shins, Fleet Foxes, and Dirty Projectors, and on two of the songs he worked with former Vampire Weekend member, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij. The creative partnership between Leithauser and Batmanglij blossomed further on last year’s collaborative album I Had a Dream That You Were Mine. On tracks like “A 1000 Times,” “In a Black Out,” and “You Ain’t That Young Kid,” Leithauser’s striking songcraft is enlivened by Batmanglij’s varied instrumentation (celeste! harpsichord! slide guitar!) and imaginative production.
