Vampire Weekend

vampire weekend

Who knows why this band has decided to come out all the way over to the other side of the world to play one show (21st of November at The Oxford Art Factory for those who want to know). I suppose it may be more of a holiday kind of thing rather than an actual tour, or maybe they haven’t organised all the other tour dates yet. I do remember bands though doing a similar thing. The Strokes come to mind a few years ago, who played The Gaelic Theatre of all places.

It may also simply be a promo kind of thing for a new album which is to come out around January next year called Contra, which is fairly exciting to know. I didn’t mind their self titled debut which came out last year. It had that really earthly, world vibe to it, without it sounding stereotypical of world music. It was fresh to hear something an album like that one when it came out. It was pretty much at a time where I was listening to too much weird experimental electronica.

Download a new track ‘Horchata’ at their website as well.

    It’s already sold out, before it even went on sale – apparently the fan club got all the tickets.

    Weird.
