Release Notes:
If you listen to much indie rock, Vampire Weekend are probably old news. Thanks
to good press and a bunch of songs available online an early version of this
album surfaced in September the New York quartet became one of 2007s most
buzzed-about new bands. Theyre four ex-Columbia University students with a
suave sound that incorporates ska, New Wave and Afro-pop interesting enough
for listeners looking for variation among their buzz bands, though not nearly as
interesting as some press would suggest. On their debut, Vampire Weekend mostly
earn points the old-fashioned way: by writing likable songs youll be glad to
revisit next month.
For much of the album, Vampire Weekend keep things simple: Songs like Mansard
Roof are little more than slinky guitar lines, keyboard and string adornments,
and caffeinated grooves. Ezra Koenig tosses off sweetly crooned melodies and
lyrics that cut nostalgia and romance with a modicum of snark: Campus is a
vignette about a college infatuation, though Koenig on another song also manages
to make a strong hook out of?Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?

As for the African thing, Vampire Weekend cite the blog Bennloxo.com as a source
of current Afro-pop one assumes that theyre also well-acquainted with
Graceland. Theyre smart enough to know theres a political dimension to
Columbia kids borrowing from Afro-pop, and their appropriations seem fairly
unspecific. Those appropriations are also tucked neatly into VWs sound: Bryn
rides the kind of triplet-based polyrhythms both India and Africa could claim,
but the tune is a love-struck thing Arcade Fire might turn out. Then theres
Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa, the most Afro of the pop tunes here, with a conga
groove and register-jumping bass lines. Koenig mentions Benetton. He sings,
This feels so unnatural/PeterGabriel, too. VW may grow out of this kind of
self-consciousness, but the song is warm and well-executed just like most of
their debut.
