The Saturday Alternative – Nov. 18th, 2017

Modified: November 18, 2017

Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Mount Qaf (Divine Love) by Peter Matthew Bauer, out now on Fortune Tellers Music.

When The Walkmen went on hiatus in 2014 it was sad news for their fans, but in those three years the individual members have put out more than enough music on their own to hold us over until a potential reunion, which may or may not even happen. Frontman Hamilton Leithauser has been prolific, releasing a few albums, including one with Rostam Batmanlij last year, Walter Martin has released three albums, and Peter Matthew Bauer has just released his second album, Mount Qaf (Divine Love) – the followup to his great 2014 solo debut, Liberation! He’s described the new album as one of esoteric love songs, and on it we hear a real sense of positive urgency, a sound that is often immediate, propulsive, anthemic and in many ways, motivational.
