On today's show I talk to musician Peter Matthew
Bauer. Partly raised on ashrams in India and the Catskills,
Peter mostly grew up in Washington DC. It was there he met his
future bandmates in The Walkmen, and he even had a high school band
with lead singer Hamilton Leithauser. From 1996 to 1999, Peter and
Hamilton played in The Recoys together, and in 2000, The Walkmen
formed from the ashes of The Recoys and Jonathan Fire*Eater. After
putting out seven albums, the band is currently on an "extended
hiatus". This gave Peter the opportunity to record his own album -
Liberation! - and tour behind it. I really love it, and
it's available now!
