Vampire Weekend is looking very "Modern"

Vampire Weekend has a lot to talk about, dropping a new album Modern Vampires of the Day, on May 14, and hitting Grant Park in August for Lollapalooza. Releasing their first album in January 2008,  I listened to the album on repeat the entire summer, and even fought my way to front to see them play live at Pitchfork that same year. How couldn't you be memorized by catchy songs like Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa, Oxford Comma, and A-Punk?!

I think everyone wanted to be stuck with Ezra and the rest of the band in Cape Cod that summer jamming to this album. Not only did the VW crew come out with bang with their first album, they were also known for their rather preppy style for an indie band. Sporting Sperry's and plaid for a lot of their shows, it truly looks like they did escape from the prepster hangout of the cape.
