Walter Martin is a songwriter best known for his work with New York City indie bands The Walkmen and Jonathan Fire*Eater.
Walter Martin jumps on the line with Kyle Meredith to dive into the details behind his new album, The World At Night. The co-founder of The Walkmen discusses writing much of the new record as a tribute to Stewart Lupton, his childhood friend and collaborator in Jonathan Fire Eater, which more or less launched the NYC indie scene of the late '90s/early '00s. We also hear about Martin's penchant for using animals, nature, and theatrics in his songs, writing "Do-Dilly-Do" for Missing Link, his day job writing commercial jingles, and the 20th anniversary of The Walkmen ("maybe we'll get some sushi").
