I’m the kind of person who is always really late to things. Especially music. I have a list of bands I should love, but haven’t gotten around to. I have a mental list and this weekend, I started crossing bands off. The first band on the list was Vampire Weekend. I resisted them for as long as I could. There’s so much hype surrounding them, how could they be good? But the truth is, they’re like the love child of the Beach Boys and Phoenix with a dash of the Clash, and it’s done so very well. I cannot stop listening. I may be super late to them and maybe you are too. So, go, now, and listen to their records.
My personal favourite is “The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance” or every other song on their Self-titled.
