New Vampire Weekend Album to Spew Sunshine




The cardigan-wearing boys (edit: men's men) of Vampire Weekend are back in the studio recording their as-of-yet untitled sophomore album, which promises to be even sunnier than their first. As keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij puts it, “These songs would be perfect for driving up the Pacific coast, or making an egg-white omelet. Basically, doing fresh things.” Since they've made name for themselves and quit their day jobs, Vampire Weekend have had more time and energy to devote to music-making than the first time around. What does this mean for listeners? Ample opportunity to flesh out their Afro-pop influences and wax twee-sodic about trips to MoMA. Keep your ears and eyes peeled for a release date this fall.
