MID-WEEK MUSIC MOMENT: VAMPIRE WEEKEND



On Monday, Vampire Weekend released two preview singles from their forthcoming album, Modern Vampires of the City, out May 7th. I've said before, that Vampire Weekend's first album is one that I could listen to over and over and never tire of it. Their second album, Contra, came out in 2010, which was I guess wasn't too long ago, but it feels like an eternity. So, finally one of my favorite bands is back, and they sound... okay.

The other single they released, "Diane Young," to me personally sounds just terrible, and this song, "Steps," is alright, and growing on me with each listen. I am only hoping that the rest of the album has that summery, escapist sound I'm going to crave during long train rides to The Hamptons this summer.

Take a listen and let me know your thoughts.
