You might not know the name Peter Matthew Bauer, but odds are you're familiar with his longtime group The Walkmen, which entered into that nebulous "indefinite hiatus" state late in 2013 while its members pursued outside projects.

You might not know the name Peter Matthew Bauer, but odds are you’re familiar with his longtime group The Walkmen, which entered into that nebulous “indefinite hiatus” state late in 2013 while its members pursued outside projects.

Bauer, who functioned as the band’s bassist/organist, was first out of the gates with his solo album Liberation!, a stylish rock record that finds the musician simultaneously enthralled and terrified by the open, uncharted road stretching out in front of him.

Skyler Skjelset also performs.
