Their new album
Stop whatever useless thing you’re doing right now, go to iTunes, and listen to Vampire Weekend’s new album Modern Vampires of the City. They’re streaming it a full week ahead of its official release, so everyone rejoice!!!!!! I may or may not have found a link to download the entire album already so if you’re feeling tech savvy/just can’t wait like me go for it. This is no doubt the best thing that will happen in my life in the next week, and I’m gonna be listening to it nonstop during finals. This album is incredible. Since their release of Contra in 2010, they’ve really developed their sound and take this album in a different direction that’s equally brilliant. I haven’t had enough time to give everything a complete listen but I already love every song and can’t wait to hear them live again at Outside Lands. The best, in my opinion, are “Step” (which already has a lyric video on Youtube since it was released a few weeks ago gogogo!!) “Don’t Lie,” and “Finger Back” is just way too much fun not to mention. These songs are all classic Vampire Weekend with the African rhythms and pop and punk influences. Just listen to it, you shouldn’t need me to tell you that.
