Vampire Weekend

Describing their sound as "Upper West Side Soweto," New York City's Vampire Weekend mix preppy, well-read indie rock with joyful, Afro-pop-inspired melodies and rhythms. Ezra Koenig, Chris Baio, Rostam Batmanglij, and Chris Tomson formed the band early in 2006, when they were finishing up their studies at Columbia University. Taking their name from a movie Koenig made during his freshman year, the band started out by playing gigs at the university's literary societies and at parties. Word spread about Vampire Weekend's unique sound and lyrics ("Oxford Comma," one of the band's earliest songs, referred to comma use in a list of three items), buoyed by the band's self-released EPs, which they recorded in locations spanning from their Columbia dorm rooms to a family barn. The buzz around Vampire Weekend reached a peak in 2007: that summer, the band embarked on its biggest tour yet, made several appearances at that year's CMJ Music Marathon, and signed with XL Records that fall. The Mansard Roof EP was Vampire Weekend's debut release for the label, followed by their self-titled first album early in 2008. Debuting within the Top 20 of both the American and U.K. album charts, the eponymous record proved to be one of the year's most popular indie releases. Vampire Weekend celebrated its success by hitting the road for the better part of two years, and keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij gathered additional accolades by releasing an album with Discovery, his electro side project with Ra Ra Riot's Wes Miles. Amidst this flurry of activity, Vampire Weekend found time to return to the studio for the creation of Contra, which arrived in early 2010. Late in 2011, the band returned to the studio to work on its third album. As sessions progressed, the group worked with Ariel Rechtshaid in his home studio; he co-produced the album with Batmanglij. Early in 2013, Vampire Weekend played a couple of songs from the album, "Diane Young" and "Ya Hey," at that year's SXSW festival. Modern Vampires of the City was released that May. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Love Vampire Weekend!
Best band of it's kind
I love them. Easily one of my favorite bands. VAMPIRE WEEKEND ALL THE WAY!! And proud!
Love the drum line and guitar bits in all of their songs; they're very layered and captivating. Never get tired of them!
Ezra Koenig is too adorable for his own good
Vampire Weekend is probably tied for my favorite band
Hey guys! If ur reading this u clearly listen to amazing music! Follow me so we can share musicccccc! Gotta appreciate this stuff
Not to be mean, I do like this song but the only reason this is alternative rock is because the majority of there songs are alt rock. Also alternative rock has a large range
A punk is probably one of the most under rated songs of all time!
First, let me say this; I am not a hater. I don't care for these guys, but hey, if you do, that's awesome! HOWEVER, this just cannot be classified as alternative rock. Alternative pop? I'll buy that. How they can even be compared to The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys or Modest Mouse (thanks Pandora), I will never know. Anyways, that's my somewhat cranky and insignifican t opinion! Enjoy!
Contra will forever be the best album ��
This wedding is horse s**t!
Love it! Now I wanna play Just Dance! Anyone one wanna play with me?lol
^.^
Probably the best song on the album, then "Step"
