Holy hell, what is this? Fun, danceable, rebellious, fresh. The new album by up and comers Vampire Weekend is an album full of pop/white reggae/indie tunes that i'm going to use to keep my summer going just that little bit longer.

This New York band was roughly discovered though band blogs, which later lead to them being on Letterman's Late Show and recently invited to ATP festival in the UK.

To put this album in a bag, would be to slightly liken it to the Clash in feel or rhythm, but with a porridge full of electro bits stirred in, that in many other contexts wouldn’t work, but with a bit of a youthful approach, it comes across fresh. Fuck it's February and this could be the record of the year.

This band should/will be very big
