Vampire Weekend have been listed in almost every alternative top albums of 08 list, despite the album being totally uninspiring and essentially crap.
How do bands like this manage to sneak under the wire of cool? Is it the name? ‘Vampire Weekend’? It’s not that good, doesn’t prompt images of greatness, and yet the music industry has surrounded them with the sort of rapturous applause usually reserved for good bands who have made great albums.
Got to wonder whose leg they humped to be heaped with such acclaim, maybe next year they’ll bugger off to the bargain bucket where they belong. Moan over.
