Obligatory Vampire Weekend Post

In a span of three days, I read about Vampire Weekend everywhere, from GQ to NY Times Sunday Styles' "A Night Out With" to every indie music column in the blogosphere. I became sick of the band, and I hadn't even heard their music. NY Magazine wrote a hilarious piece describing the whole phenomenon. See here. The Zach Braff dig is particularly funny.

Recognizing that if you write a blog that addresses music, you must write about Vampire Weekend, here I go:

- Columbia
- Preppy
- Paul Simon's Graceland
- Afro-pop
- Oxford Comma
- Blog hype
- Blog hype hype

I finally heard a single or two. I'm not really into it.
