I’ve always been back and forth on my liking of Vampire Weekend. I surely don’t think they are as great as a lot of people make them out to be, but I find some of their songs to be really good. In my opinion, Vampire Weekend’s songs can be really catchy or just kind of dull. Sometimes I view them a more put together and marketable version of The Walkmen.
I must admit that ‘A-Punk’ is on my list as one of the best indie songs to dance around to, while “Oxford Comma” is one of my favorite songs to listen to on a fall day and paint to. I guess the test of time will see if Vampire Weekend becomes a memorable indie band or just another generic hype machine. Its so hard to tell these days.
In any case, enjoy “Oxford Comma.” Its a pretty damn fine video.
