Some people won't like the Vampy Weeks Extended Universe either - and I didn't like his first solo album that much, the new one seems like it's better but there's no vids from it yet - but anything's got to be better than continuing down that other road

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam – A 1000 Times
FTLT (the citizen that alerted the citizenry to the likes of Alabama Shakes and Courtney Barnett long before everyone else figured it out, who also used to be a DJ, contributor, and frequent commenter as well as being known as somewhat of a basketball enthusiast (in the case that anyone is unfamiliar)) causally dropped a mention in a FMD a little bit back. I've learned to listen when the hitman does so.
A collaboration between the lead singer of The Walkmen and one of the main cogs of Vampire Weekend, their album is a whirling plunge through genres, eras, and textures, but all with a distinctly original sound that I hope they explore on another album or two. Anyway, this song has been between lowkey to rock-climber's grip stuck in my head for the past few weeks now.
