The weather at this weekend's inaugural Outside Lands festival in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park may have been a tad chilly for a summer rockathon, but it suited the Walkmen's dark-hued balladry and pale skin tones just fine. Check out video of the New York rockers performing "On the Water" and "New Country," both off of their just-released full-length, You & Me, and be thankful frontman Hamilton Leithauser and crew -- who spent the good part of the last year holed up in this studio -- didn't suffer an out-of-character sunburn.
