This Song: Walker Lukens

By: admin

This year, Austin’s Walker Lukens released his second album Tell It To The Judge, produced by Spoon’s Jim Eno. It’s a hook-laden mix of pop, rock, electronic, and obtuse lyrics, music that you can emotionally understand without necessarily literally understanding. Listen as Lukens describes how Fleetwood Mac’s “Sara” works in a similar way for him, and hear how it’s gotten him through some tough times.
