Though they only disbanded last winter, several of The Walkmen’s members have already launched their own solo projects. Frontman Hamilton Leithauser is currently on tour in support of his forthcoming Black Hours, while multi-instrumentalist Walter Martin has been busy rolling out kid-friendly music off his new album, We’re All Young Together. Bassist Peter Matthew Bauer is no different, as he’s prepping the release of his debut LP, Liberation!, due out June 24th via Mexican Summer.

After sharing the crunchy lead single “Latin American Ficciones”, Bauer returns with a new song called “Philadelphia Raga”. The nearly five-minute track begins as an elegant and refined instrumental before eventually morphing into a toe-tapping, mid-tempo rocker. Listen in below.
