It's like a Reincarnation!

It occurs to me that I would be offended by Vampire Weekend's complete and total ripoff of Simon & Garfunkel's sound if it weren't for the fact that is so entirely pleasing.

Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma - Vampire Weekend

It's like they took all the great parts from "Cecilia" and "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard" and forged a 10-song album from them.

As it turns out, sometimes hype is founded.


  1. I'm on the fence. I always like catchy things at first, but then they don't stick. We'll see!

  2. I really like the album on the whole though.

    And I wasn't big on Takka Takka (too ... electronic for me). Diffrn't strokes! ;)

  4. Okay, now I'm totally giddy over the fact that this video (an obvious nod to Wes Anderson) was directed by Richard Ayoade of The IT Crowd! EEEE!
