when i first heard about vampire weekend i got all excited about the vampire part of the band name, how fun it is, imagine a weekend with a bunch of musical vampires?!, blahblah. i of course never got around to listening to them, and in the past weeks got all caught up in the hype/backlash/constant buzz about the band and wound up resorting to my "you're overexposed and so now i hate you" stance with them (cutesy name and images and all).
after an accidental listen i got hooked...andddd i've been enjoying the vampires all week now.
two other entries in the "music i'm into this week" category:
the raveonette's "aly, walk with me" - puts me in the mood for a tarantino movie marathon.
bob mould's "again and again" - the lyrics kinda make you want to cut your heart out and put it in a cabinet (i mean that in the nicest way possible).
