Vampire Weekend's latest album is a worth sequel to 20102s Contra, presenting songs that truly stand on the merits of their memorable writing and lush instrumentation. WATCH THE REVIEW
After being pushed back an extra week due to some production issues, new Vampire Weekend has arrived. Modern Vampires of the City is the title of the New York indie rocker's third full length album and while it may not be Vampire Weekend or Contra , this record surely deserves some recognition. Tracks like "Finger Back" and lead single "Diane Young" really bring it with the beautiful yet chaotic use of different instruments and fills. However, Ezra Koenig and company have the slower stuff figured out as well with a sweet and simple mix of piano, synth [...]
"A total shift of mindset becomes fully realized in ‘Modern Vampires of the City’, as Vampire Weekend grow out of their collegiate trappings and exchange youth for wisdom..." Vampire Weekend | Modern Vampires of the City Though it may not have matched the mystery (or budget) of Daft Punk’s recent pre-release antics, the build up to Vampire Weekend’s third studio album has been undeniably peculiar. After dropping two completely different new singles simultaneously back in March, the New York four piece have since gatecrashed the annual NYC Easter parade, claimed column inches for pissing off [...]

When Vampire Weekend dropped the first cut "Diane Young" from their upcoming album Modern Vampires Of The City , the video that accompanied it was a slow-mo lyrics video of various and sundry Saab's being set on fire. It was also followed by a similar lyrics video, but with less flaming cars, for "Step" , and now they're following in the trend with a lyrics video for "Ya Hey" . This time we have some Manhattan socialites wasting perfectly [...]

VW's second pre-release offering is slow, soft, and sweet. It's probably the prettiest song we've heard from these guys. Their full-length Modern Vampires of the City will be upon us May 14. From what the band has said, we can expect this album from Vampire Weekend to be darker. Judging from some re-arrangements of older songs featured during the band's set during SXSW, the album might be slower as well. By Bruce Rave Vampire Weekend - Step Vampire Weekend [...]
When Vampire Weekend's first album came out, I adored it. I played it everywhere, even in my 2nd grade class until I realized they were singing 'fuck' repeatedly in "Oxford Comma." And you know what? I still love that album. And you know, for a while, the indie scene loved Vampire Weekend too. And then that love started to wane. There's probably lots of reasons: they got hyped beyond what any band can live up to, their second album wasn't as good as their first, they went to an Ivy League school. But I [...]
Vampire Weekend is an interesting case. Their debut self-titled album seemed to be unanimously loved. It's not that it was incredibly profound, or beautiful, but it was simply so fun. Who knows how many students had "A-Punk" playing on their iPod while walking to school on a spring day. Their style was immediately relatable, cheerful, and catchy. Then came Contra , another fantastic extension of what they did with their debut. They played with many more instruments, and was a little more experimental, but the same great style was present. Somehow though, the buzz was lost. The hype seemed [...]

Teasing toward the release of their third full-length album, Vampire Weekend drums up two bold pop tracks of two different flavors. WATCH THE REVIEW
The band that delivered one of my favourite albums of 2007, Vampire Weekend , are gearing up for the release of their third album in a few months. They have been test driving the songs in the past few months, resulting in smartphone videos popping up on the internet, but now, finally, we get to hear songs that are actually going to be on the album in full form. Sharing two simple, but good looking songs and videos last week my expectations are high and I hope they will be able to approach the [...]
On vous annonçait hier la publication du premier extrait de Modern Vampires of the City , le très uptempo « Young Diane ». Même si ce morceau possède tous les charmes du titre Vampire Weekend -esque parfait, on ne peut s'empêcher de penser que ce titre n'offre pas vraiment à voir une nouvelle facette de la musique des brooklynites. En revanche, la face B est vraiment digne d'intérêt - comme sur le premier album (probablement le meilleur), les talents de songwriter d'Ezra Koenig font merveille. Les paroles sont brillamment écrites, très à-propos et les jeux de mots n'entravent [...]
Six years after Vampire Weekend set the indie blogosphere on fire with the Afro-syncopated prepster-pop of their self-tiled debut, the band is set to release its third album, Modern Vampires of the City . Now, you can hear the album's first two tracks, "Diane Young" and "Step," which find the Ivy League foursome sounding more confident and mature than ever. Sonically, the band still seems to take plenty of cues from Graceland , but "Diane Young" also features the musical aesthetics of a harder-charging brand of Elvis Costello-esque [...]
Vampire Weekend is back everybody, this time with teasers off of their 3rd forthcoming album Modern Vampires of the City ( out on May 7th). The track that really struck me was "Step". It's a style that is very reminiscent of the early VW we fell in love with years ago. What excites me is that they continue to create music with a kind of muted grandeur that is light hearted and warm to the core. This cozy musical atmosphere is complemented even more by Ezra Koenig's delicate vocals which add to the clever lyrical wordplay that VW has grown [...]
Vampire Weekend swings through and drops off not one, but TWO brand new singles in the form of "Diane Young" and "Step." Always stellar to hear something new from the Glen Ridge, NJ crew - and you have to respect them for continuing to build on the successful formula they've ... Read More
