New Vampire Weekend Video!

(And, yes, I do like the VW album. Not as great as some people make it out to be, but it's enjoyable and catchy.)

Edited to add: It's been years since I've seen this. Legendary performance, of course, but why in the world would people want to be at the very back of this crowd? Was it possible to actually hear anything?

Edited again: To be fair, here's Vampire Weekend's video for "A-Punk". Apparently these guys went to Columbia.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I love the album. Did you know they went to Columbia?

I can't believe you're saying it, either. I take comfort in the fact that no one will be talking about them a year from now. Those degrees will come in handy.

Have you heard the whole album, Sal? It's really pleasant and catchy. And I think I may have read somewhere that they went to Columbia.

Nope. Based on the 2 songs I've heard and everything I've read about them, they are not my thing. But I do tend to react hard against bands that are being hyped as much as these guys (Hell, I'll still haven't bought an Arcade Fire or Clap Your Hands record as a result).

Honestly, it's a really good record. I too usually hate the hype thing, but they have a huge, huge Orange Juice debt to pay, and that's a good thing.
