Vampire Weekend Revisited

I purchased the album from Plan 9 yesterday on my way to the butcher shoppe, and I have to say that Vampire Weekend is rocking my ears to the extreme.

Some of my favorite tracks (other than the previously mentioned “M79”) include “A-Punk”, a Police-meets-The Strokes piece that gets my feet shuffling for just over two minutes, and “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, a song which musically sounds more Cape Town than Cape Cod. The instrumentation seems one moment spare, the next lush with strings and keys, and the vocals are clear and uplifting.

One more reason to wish I was at SXSW 🙂
