I know, I know. Vampire Weekend, so last week right? But hey, my review for the LA Weekly was filed nearly three weeks ago and besides, I already wrote about them in July. I liked them then, I like them now. Yes, their eponymous debut LP that dropped on XL last week is a good record. Yes, the band are a little annoying and I fully understand the venom unleashed last week by Julianne Shepherd in the Village Voice. Trust, the album triggered my “hater instinct” (located in the hippocampus, I believe) more than a few times. Needless to say anyone who ironically drops the lyric, ‘Lil Jon is always right’ or rhymes “Louis Vuitton with reggaeton,” deserves to be drop-kicked.Yes, this includes Kanye. The review explains more. If you read it, I will buy you a cookie.
