Have you heard about this new band Vampire Weekend? If you are as confused as I am about all the new music that is out there today, then I have a helpful way to remember who is who. Vampire Weekend sounds like girls… but aren’t. Phoenix is always whining. M83 has a girl and a british robot in it. XX sounds like ghosts. Oh, and every band is from Cape Cod. This is a picture of that dry comedian Nathan Fiedler proposing to his friend and introducing Vampire Weekend.
As an intramural music critic I will offer my inappropriate 6 year late opinion. I like how they say rad things in a gay way. Flirty melodies, complicated mixolydian, vernacular at the 12th grade reading level… but then they say something like the way I would say it. Like regular guy talk.
Jump suits are trending. Ezra is also better at Twitter than you.
If it is a music venue, you can believe Box Water’s Kevin and Mitzi Hockin will be there.
Sell outs… get it?
