Peter Matthew Bauer
Liberation!

 

Following a brief period of world travels, he returned & immediately livened up the party.

 

FOR FANS OF

The Walkmen, Tom Petty, War on Drugs

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT

You were bummed out when The Walkmen went on hiatus, but you’re a little weary of solo projects. When bands break up and members go solo, the frontman is always the one with the most viable future. Fans are far more weary of the other members, even when they played major roles in the band (think Marr vs Morrissey). Peter Matthew Bauer’s debut solo record immediately shows that Bauer brought a lot to the Walkmen, and will remain a strong presence on his own. It’s a rock record along the lines of his time with The Walkmen or Tom Petty, but Bauer also throws in some interesting new flourishes, mixing in field recordings and a bit of american primitivism on album highlight “Philadelphia Raga.”
