album review: Vampire Weekend:: Vampire Weekend::: XL Recordings

    Given the group’s Ivy League pedigree, one might expect long-winded dissertations concerning who knows what, exactly, out of recent XL Recordings signees, Vampire Weekend. Instead, the band’s debut full length plays like precious post card pop; one side beaming in picture perfect musical snap shots of Cape Cod, Khyber Pass, New York City, Old San Juan, and South Africa; the other sketched in Ezra Koenig’s semi-legible, lyrical scribbles. High society escapades, beach house grope and grabs, carefree campus time, and pointless punctuation (“Who gives a fuck about an oxford comma?”)…Sifting through such collegiate concerns might draw a few sourpuss sighs and “oh to be young” eye rolls from a slightly older crowd. But everyone deserves their youth…especially when it sounds this good. KEEP READINGDavid Pitz
