Vampire Weekend

The Vampire Weekend pulled off the rare feet of producing an album that is outstanding from start to finish. Part Police, part Strokes, part Paul Simon, with a touch of Sublime, it's great summer music.

Here's M79:

And Oxford Comma:

And my personal favorite, Walcott:

Walcott, don't you know that it's insane, don't you wanna get out of Cape Cod...


  • The video for Oxford Comma is very funny and well made considering it looked to be shot all in one take. I googled Oxford Comma and it's actually the comma that comes in a list before the 'and'. For instance, Peyton, Tom and Brett doesn't have an oxford comma while Peyton, Tom, and Brett does. Not sure I loved the song (although all their stuff would probably grow on me) but at least I'll have that bit of trivial knowledge forever.

  • Good stuff. I bought the album after reading Greg Mankiw's recommendation.

    My only complaint is their tunes are way too catchy. After a weekend of heavy rotation I can't get it out of my head.
