Album Review: Vampire Weekend
Release date:Jan 29, 2008.
The debut full length release and self-titled Vampire Weekend will make any hipster giggle at how relaxed the new-wave sound is.
Light-hearted and whimsical, this release puts an edgy spin on pop, and adds a new chill factor to your hearts.
With influences and kickbacks to west-african pop, afrobeat has found its way into the modern indie scene, and no one is complaining.
Carrying a not-quite-so-catchy feel to it, but enjoyable on all levels to no end. Listening to this will make you question whether you really had a vacancy in your heart for more indie-pop, but you immediately dismiss the notion because now you feel whole again.
I just can't get enough of this album, and I am sure it will somehow continue to surprise me months down the road.
I Stand Corrected
I really cannot wait to listen to this album when it is summer, and it will all come together.
Vampire Weekend deserves nothing less than a Fu Manchu's 4 out of 5.
