Possibly. I definitely felt a little rectal tremor when I was reading yours.

I think I got all of the pop tunes out of my system for now, so don't be scared by the masses of pop downloads.

I don't scare easily.

And it was a good read.

Cool! It's a goal of mine to post more often.

Now that I know more than 3 people will occasionally swing by, it'll be easier.

Easier is fine, but I'd prefer if you made it sleazier. Sleaze me, please me.
:Pray:

I don't know, Lance's Mom has more than 3 people occasionally swinging by, and I can't imagine that's easy.

I just came across this when i was looking at the link for the Bjork tribute. Apparently Vampire Weekend covered friggin' Exit Music (For a Film)! It's only streaming on the link now, but if anyone can find an mp3 of it, I'd greatly appreciate it.

By the way, I'm seeing them live tonight. I'll let you all know how it goes.

I found an MP3 of their cover of the above Radiohead song, if anyone is interested.


Had a good time at their show last night. They played the entire album (except for Kids Don't Stand a Chance, unfortunate), a new song, and Ladies of Cambridge. The songs were surprisingly loud live, and all were a great deal of fun. For me, the live vocals were the most impressive thing, as he sounded fantastic. I was kinda surprised by how young they actually look in person. I knew they were young, but they looked like little kids. Luckily though, these little kids can play some decent pop rock. If you enjoy the album, I'm pretty confident you'll have a fun time seeing them live as well.

If you scroll down this link a little, you can watch videos of A-Punk, M79, and Wolcott being performed acoustically (with a string section).

Can you PM it to me, please?

Thank you.

Sheesh, the band hasn't even been properly hyped up yet and I'm already reading about the backlash,

It's almost depressing how fast and predictable these cycles have become.

i heard a-punk on the radio and was mildly interested enough to find out who it was. that's as hyped as i'll be getting, though.

If you weren't such an enormous liar, I'd probably believe you.


Here's yet another cool video of Vampire Weekend performing with some other backing musicians. This time it's the Crenshaw High School Drum Line.

Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa + drum line

Generally when bands are on these kinds of shows, you rarely see more than one or two people in the crowd who know who they are and are singing along. Everyone they show in the above vid does, pretty cool.
