Vampire Weekend – “Ya Hey”

Standard

Are we excited for this album?

NO WE ARE NOT

I have this terrible feeling that the new album, Modern Vampires Of The City, is going to be a gigantic clusterfuck.  This track is alright (minus the annoying high-to-low chirping being used as an instrument) and “Steps” comes off like a typical VW track, but “Diane Young” is such a horrific abortion of a song that I would not be surprised in the slightest if the album becomes the band’s Centipede Hz.  Time will tell, I suppose – ten days to be exact.
