Haven't played any Vampy Weeks in a while
Happy New Vampy Weeks Day!
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.
Thanks to the powers that be for letting me spin one extra track.
Anyway, we've been singing the bridge to this song around the house the past month or two (starting around the 45-second mark). Without even connecting the dots, Sheenie suggested Diane as a girl's name she really likes.
And we'll end the week looking forward, with the song that I think will be one of the anthems of the summer.
I've liked Vampire Weekend just fine before, but wasn't all that impressed. They may have turned a corner here.
