Best new TUNE

Step by Vampire Weekend

The excellent single off the upcoming third album, Modern Vampires of the City by the always impressive Vampire Weekend, has a backdrop utilizing Pachelbel’s Canon, and clever lyricism to create a sophisticated, pop gem. Has some standout lyrics, “Your girl was in Berkeley with her Communist reader, mine was entombed within boombox and walkman”, and “Stale conversation deserves but a bread knife.”
