*does a happy dance* Yay first post!!!
I love Vampire Weekend! I'm nota die hard fan yet, I still have yet to watch their videos, but I love Mansard Roofs! Oxford Coma is a second, but its getting a little over played by my local alternative station. I found VW before they did! I laughed. YAY!

I love this band.
They have such a different sound from others, I can tell right away when I hear the first few measures of a song that I'm listening to VW. My favorite would have to be Campus, followed by Oxford Comma. Their Music Videos are cool too. I like thier Oxford Comma one. If you want to watch them they are on their myspace page.

a few months ago a bunch of my friends were obsessed with them then in July I finally got their album and they are pretty freaking cool. They have a really unique sound. My favorites are Oxford Comma and Campus.

YAY VAMPIRE WEEKEND!!!! luckily I live in the tiny country of New Zealand so none of their music gets over-played, they're very much still an underground band here. My favourite song would have to be Walcott, partly because its on of my favourite episodes of Skins (season 2) but they are a very talented band and I love that they sound like no other bands, very original :D

It's Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.

My favourite has always been, and will probably always be The Kids Don't Stand A Chance. Ezra's voice in that song, ahhhh, no words to describe.

VW is too cool to be going as mainstream as they've been recently. It's depressing, because a band as unique as this one should not be ridiculed and critiqued by MTV viewers, and Hollister lovers. I miss when no one had ever heard Oxford Comma; before SNL, before the actual album release, before the hype, the exclusice N&N track.
