Hit of the week: Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam “A 1000 Times”

After working on a pair of songs together on Hamilton Leithauser’s 2014 solo debut, Black Hours, he and former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij have formally announced a collaborative project. As Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam, they’ve just unveiled debut tune, “A 1000 Times.”

The song begins with a bit of late night parlor piano and Leithauser’s familiar call. It both has the bop and soul of a classic Walkmen cut, with the honked harmonica lending a touch of Springsteen to the piece.
