Contra-Band

How do vampire's spend their weekends? Just hanging around? (wah-waaaah) Enjoying a bite? (wah-waaaaaaaah)


I loved Vampire Weekend's 2008 self-titled album which was introduced to me by Douglas (if you think you have more music than him, you don't). We were on a business (for him)/pleasure (for me) trip to San Francisco and spent much driving time with VW blasting from the convertible.

The preppy, playful, repetitive and infectious tunes make me bop. Actually bop.

Most of the time I don't understand what they are saying and when I do, I can't identify with the rich-y privileged angst the lyrics exude. And what exactly is the genre? Indie? Calypso? Ska? Afro-pop? Synth? Not sure, but who cares.

It makes me BOP.
