Vampire Weekend – Vampire Weekend

Vampire Weekend

“Vampire Weekend”

I could mention the world music influence, the seemingly high IQ of the band, and the East Coast (semi-Ivy League) roots, but all those angles have been covered. This debut album is what many bands would kill to release just once in their catalog – it’s calculated while allowing some humor and spontaneity to exist. Luckily this isn’t one of those one-album wonder stories either, but more on that later.

Grade: A-

Favorite Track: One (Blake’s Got A New Face)
