… because Vampire Weekend started getting huge in the beginning of 2008. While I heard their music then, I recently listened to a few songs again and got really hooked all of a sudden. Their album is a really interesting, unique, solid piece of work. (Pop with African hooks and beats to use broad descriptive strokes.)
Here’s one of their hits: A-Punk
Oh, and they name-checked “Mystic Seaport” in one of their songs! I used to live in Mystic, just down the road from the Seaport, but never actually managed to get there.
