It's been kind of a slow go of it for music to begin the year, but today marked the day of one of the year's most anticipated records, Vampire Weekend's self-titled debut. For such an unassuming band and laid back record, the band is receiving wildly disparate reactions. I just think it's good, super-literary, afro-pop inflected indie-rock. Nothin wrong with that, right?
Anyhow, here's a nice 10 minute clip of a recent in store performance by the band at Other Music. There is also a quick little interview with the band where they talk about their first record purchases and show going experiences.
