grammar snob here. pllllllz proofread your posts at least once before posting. your shit never ever reads like it should. other than that, hasn't everyone been over vampire weekend for like a year, brah.

Chandler Bing has a band?

I suppose that all of the bands on your "Music" list will be replaced within the year, according to your logic. There is something to be said for staying current, but the way you allow the exposure and audience of an artist to dictate your preferences leads me to question your criteria for evaluation. You seem to be guided more heavily by forces outside of the music itself. Critique the music and not the scene and you can retain your credibility. Otherwise, you expose your use of music as a cultural marker (which I imagine places you in an elevated social stratum) than a cultural experience. In other words, please stop using music, which should be shared by all, as a mechanism to elevate yourself onto the high horse which you now appear to be mounted. (Or is it mounting you?)


hey bud
just sayin....a pretty fair amount of the music you list on the left column is more popular than vampire weekend. come on, most of the shit on there is a bunch of oasis/blur clones that has so much less soul than one vampire weekend song. i dont even like the band anymore....im bored of them. i'm just saying your reasoning for hating them is really stupid...especially since you like such mainstream tripe like the ting tings. come on....they suck dick. and you suck too. you cant consider yourself "too indie" to like vampire weekend when you really dont listen to anything really unknown(at least according to your blog). so really, just shut the fuck up please. thanks


Dude, Joe. What is your malfunction? For a guy who hates my site, you sure do love stopping by. You've left 15 comments total. If you think I suck, then why waste your time coming to my site? Stereogum, BrooklynVegan and My Old Kentucky Blog might be a better fit for you. I'm sorry you're a bitter lonely soul, but don't you think you can channel your anger into something useful?


Sometimes a band just gets old. Vampire Weekend is one of those bands.


Dude, I love your blog. I think its hilarious. Anyway, referring to the blog thang above, I agree, Vampire Weekend is old. But then again, so is everything that comes out and then is fed to the masses. Its ok to be snob, a bit annoying, but if you listen to good music, its ok to be a bit pretentious. Anyway, keep bashing the terrible. I for one would advise you to quote Jay-Z and say to all those against you..."Either love me, or leave me alone." Word. ha.

Hiya, as usual I think you're calling this right - Vampire Weekend's "image" was fun at fitrst but they have overcooked it.

As for the music, I saw them live in Glasgow a few months back and was pretty disapppointed. They seemed to be churning out the tunes. My older pal, a guy who is almost 40, who knows music inside out, hit the nail on the head after the first song - "I have serious reservations about this gig already. The singer looks like Fred Savage"

Kepe up the good work! Your music taste is very similar to mine so this site is great for keeping me up to date.



I never understood the hype about this band. I read blogs full of praise for Vampire Weekend then I listened to their music a couple of times and I was not convinced.
