New Vampire Weekend? OMG!!!
For the first time, we’ll be able to hear “White Sky” in all its afro-pop glory without having to go to a Vampire Weekend concert or listen to a crappy YouTube video. The song was great when I saw it performed live, with bubbly, Graceland-inspired guitars, the boppy keyboard, and Ezra Koenig’s melodic wailing. I’m sure it will be just as good tomorrow night.
Check it out on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, March 18th. Then check back here for PMA’s official review. Until then, however, we have a a QUESTION for all you readers:
Will Vampire Weekend be able to match the success of their first album with record number two? Or will they face the dreaded sophomore slump as their sound begins to tire? Comment away!
And click on for the aforementioned crappy YouTube video of “White Sky.”
