Label: XL Recordings
No kidding, this is one of the most refreshing bands I've heard in ages...Think of the feeling when you heard Arcade Fire for the first time or perhaps Burial, you knew it was exciting and new, you felt that you were on to something different. Well Vampire Weekend are one of those bands, instantly accessible but following their own path. This is a super album from start to finish, taking in lots of influences but without being messy. Should be one of the albums of 2008. VERY RECOMMENDED.
