Vampire Weekend
Originally uploaded by alestria.
i have been on a vampire weekend kick for the last couple of months. at first i wasn't into them. jo mentioned wanting to see them in brooklyn and i passed. but now i'm kicking myself because all the hype has made it impossible for me to catch them at bowery. their two nights are sold out and i am trying to scheme my way in, but i think it's unlikely. how did they all go to my school when i was there and we were never friends? ok, huge college, that is stupid. but no fair.

i feel a bit predictable that i'm now downloading their references, trying to see where they are plucking things. ladysmith black mambazo, paul simon's graceland. oh the power of soulseek.

Find what you can by Rochereau -- he's a bit more minimal than what you'll find on Graceland and the like (after repeated listens, I'm not crazy about Graceland, personally), but you'd probably like it if you're into other VW references.
