("Ezra"? I sound like such a groupie.)
My friends must be so tired of hearing me talk about Vampire Weekend. But I can't help it. Their sound is upbeat, clever, joyful—and they sound like they're having a great time making it. It's great music for a party, for a workout, for cooking. They went to my college (way after me), and though it shouldn't matter so much, I feel like they're the retroactive soundtrack to my own college years. I just *get* them. And I was so happy to read that their new album is coming in May. So here's a song for your Thursday. And another. Didn't that put you in a better mood?
