of course. i may or may not be lying when i saw that i should be around the internet to tell more untruths now that i own a laptop and frequently find myself parked outside of wi-fi hotspots when i'm at work.

Saw them live a month or so ago along with about half of the kids who attend the high school where I work They put on a pretty good show but I don't think they'll last 5 years.

Sorry I'm so late to the discussion.

If you missed it like I did, you can watch it here. Go to the second to last break or line:

NBC Video Rewind

They played The Kids Don't Stand a Chance.

Just gave this album a spin today in my car and dug it more than I thought.

"A Punk" could very well be the most exuberant, indietastic song not by Los Campesinos! that I've heard all year.

It's great bubblegum music!
Good to play at parties or driving.
No real substance though..... I still love it though.

Great music video too, you should watch it immediately if you haven't already.

My fave radio station has recently put a new(ish) Vampire Weekend song into their regular rotation...it's not on the album, I think it first appeared on the soundtrack to the movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist that came out a little while back.

Anyway, I really like it. It's got a bit of a different vibe than the songs on the LP, although it features a repeat of the lyric "feels so unnatural, Peter Gabriel too" from Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.

It's called Ottoman. Check it out -

YouTube - Vampire Weekend - Ottoman

For some reason I had misunderstood that Ottoman was just a redone version of Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa without the swears, this is completely different. I'll have to buy this of iTunes. Thanks for the heads up, Gaffer.

They'll be performing a new song tonight on Jimmy Fallon's terrible show.

They're playing at Smith College next month. If it were on a weekend, I'd make the trip up to see them for sure. I've been playing this album like crazy for the last few months.

I just decided that I'm going out tonight, so I won't be able to watch this. Someone make a detailed, 12 page report of the goings on. Transcribed lyrics would be a plus, as well as a diagram of the chord progressions in the new song and a summary of Ezra's shifty eye movements/goofy stage antics. Thanks.

You could have just read the four posts above yours, would have taken about 15 seconds.

I still haven't watched the clip though, so this will make it considerably easier despite my complaining.
