Fangs a lot


MY LAST recommendation for my cherry-popping blog entries today is Vampire Weekend's eponymous Vampire Weekend.

A truly joyous mix of the jangly monotonous rock of the Strokes and the genre-bending afropop of Paul Simon with a splash of ska and occasional strings, Vampire Weekend's snooty afrorock is debauched, raw and bouncing with an almost naive amount of energy, and cannot fail to grab you by the throat.
