Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio has released a new, three-song solo EP of crisp, upbeat production with a dash of wistfulness and Matias Aguayo for good measure. As Baio explains, it’s music for reading or dancing or, more abstractly, hopeful melancholy. Sunburn is available now on iTunes, and Baio will be DJing tonight at Le Bain in NYC, as well as a select number of shows in various cities—see dates below.
