Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires Of The City

As ever, for the more mainstream stuff, Boomkat will sort you out nicely for an independent place to get the FLAC from

Well bugger me sideways with an animatronic panda and call me Wesley, Vampire Weekend have managed to make an album without any horrendous songs on. They've always had some really great songs on their albums but interspersed with stuff that veered from average to outright embarrassing. Take the first album for example. A Punk makes me literally want to jump under a combine harvester. The worst shit in the world ever. Like an unholy mixture of Less Than Jake, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Coldplay.

However, you could make a pretty decent EP out of that first album with help from the delete button. Second one had some great tunes as well but a fair amount of filler too.

Thankfully it's actually possible to listen to this new Vampire Weekend album all the way through without wanting to jump on a plane and batter the band's family pets to death with a golf club.

Quite an achievement in anyone's books.

Here's the good tunes:-
