Vampire Weekend

For a next-big-thing-UK-press-flavour-of-the-month type band, I reckon these guys are okay. They’ve got it all – the accent, the stop-start thing, the Beatles orchestration, but avoid being trite and annoying – amazing!!

Wry lyrics and cool arrangements help.’Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’ is a standout. It’s a complete Bow Wow Wow rip, but that’s pretty novel in itself? And about time… Malcolm McLaren, eh?

The video cracks me up and suits the track (‘Benetton colours’ lyrics etc) too:
