Stream a Father's Day Playlist curated by the Walkmen's Walter Martin

When beloved aughties fivesome the Walkmen announced their indefinite hiatus late last year, Walter Martin decided to take an indie-rock road less traveled.

After becoming a dad for the first time, he began working on a sweetly understated of collection of folk-tinged ditties about clouds, Costa Rican monkeys, and messy hair, and brought in friends like Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Matt Berninger of the National to help out in the studio.

The result, We’re All Young Together, was released last month — music to the ears of parents eager forĀ  family-friendly albums beyond the dancing dinosaur/Baby Beluga axis.

In honor of Father’s Day, Martin has created a playlist exclusively for EW; find out why he chose these songs from the likes of Johnny Cash, the Kinks, and Hank Williams Jr. and stream the full set on our Spotify player below: READ FULL STORY
