Like a kid in a candy store, I can’t wait for Vampire Weekend’s new album Modern Vampires on May 7th. I mean, you can’t help but smile when you here these guy’s music. It’s just good. It’s different. It’s original. It’s wow. When this thing comes out, it’ll be like Mugatu says, “the circus is in town”. Below are two videos of two songs on the new album. The first is my favourite, Step. In true Vampire Weekend fashion these guys take the high road to musical enlightenment. Or, in other words its similar to their previous work. I like it a lot. After the jump, the second is Diane Young. This one is a new road for these guys. It’s still got their elements but with a twist. Still happy poppy Vampire Weekend, just different for them. Not bad, just different. See what you think, and feel free to comment.
