Something to Sink Your Teeth Into

Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend

So I’ve been spending most of this week listening to the debut album from Vampire Weekend and I have to say it’s really grown on me. A simplistic sound but with some infectious melodies resulting in some very pleasant pop music. The arrangements are basic but memorable and quick to the point. (The album only clocks in at about 34 minutes) The 60s sounding keyboards produce a nice vintage sound and are well complimented by the full bass and some nice n’ choppy guitar work. The Drum parts give off somewhat of an Island rhythm vibe and are always inventive. The songs here range from speedy indie rock to laid back alternative. Overall it’s a very respectable debut album and I look forward to what these lads will do next.

Favorite Tracks: “A-Punk”, “The Kids Don’t Stand A Chance”, “Oxford Comma”,
