    I really like this new Vampire Weekend album. "Diane Young" and "Ya Hey" definitely show some 80s pop influence. This is an improvement over the previous album for sure.

    As one of those people who borderline-irrationally hates Vampire Weekend, the next few weeks are going to be rough to endure.

    The next 6 months, rather.

    C'mon Mitch. They're from NY. One of them has to be a Yankee fan.

    Seriously, I tried to hate at first ( my college freshman daughter raved so I kneejerk scoffed) but now I have given in.

    They're good and they are doing it (seemingly) on their own terms. Having fun.

    Seen them three times live and have not walked away disappointed.

    Good god I cannot stop listening to The So So Glos' Blowout. Every song is just so damn good. The album starts off with song-after-song of disgustingly catchy big anthemic punk rock songs. Then, at about the halfway point the band undergoes and weird transition and I can't quite put my finger on it... but its damn great as well. I must have listened to this album 4 or 5 times in the past 2 days. I just can't turn it off. I highly recommend it.

    I hated the songs I heard from the first Vampire Weekend album, and never bothered to listen to anything else. Every single person I know seems to love them though, I might have to revisit them.

    But why will the next few weeks be rough to endure? Because all of the pretentious blogs that shouldn't be given the time of day anyway will each be giving their two cents?

    That's like saying the next few weeks are going to suck because you don't like the NBA playoffs. Just change the channel.

    Well, for people who don't like Sports, i do see why they'd be annoyed if they have a whole bunch of sports fans as friends on facebook. I mostly see this because people on facebook bitch about sports posts on facebook so much that they are more annoying than the sports fans themselves.

    Vampire Weekend is one of those bands that people feel compelled to brag about hating.

    Vampire Weekend seems like an odd band to actively hate to me. I can understand not liking them but I can't see anything about them that would inspire rage. Yawns maybe, but not intense loathing. I've never really understood Frank's "minstrel show" comment.

    Finally listened to Iceage's You're Nothing after weeks of delaying it. What a fucking killer album, haven't heard a new punk record like this in forever. Definitely in my top 10 so far this year

    I like reading music criticism, even music criticism that is up its own ass. But you identified the problem: I am less "bragging" that I don't like Vampire Weekend, and more lamenting the fact that it is completely ordinary music that constantly and inexplicably gets praised as some sort of important work that's worth spilling all kinds of ink over.

    It also drives me insane that it is now literally impossible to criticize this band for being the pile of derivative pop that it is without some dude on the internet accusing you of being anti-elitist or whatever. It's so fucking tired.

    That's part two of the Vampire Weekend defense: if you point out, "no, I don't think these guys suck because they're rich and went to Columbia," then the response you get back is usually "well how dare they make fun pop!"

    Weird. I stated a simple fact and suddenly it's a "defense". You care far too much.

    For what it's worth, I used to be a hater, until they put on a set at Coachella that I loved. Apparently being a fan of a band now means you're an apologist.

    I didn't even know or give a single shit that they went to Columbia. Please, attack me for that too, noble crusader.

    Would you guys rather listen to Vampire Weekend or, say, Staind/3 Doors Down/Nickelback? Cuz fans of those bands likely hate Vampire Weekend, too.

    The minstrel show comment just shows a total lack of understanding of minstrelcy. Those were white people dressing as black people playing white popular music. Here, the suggestion is that they are taking "African" styles and whitening them, which is not the same thing at all, since they're not portraying themselves as having even the slightest amount of melanin. And the "they're stealing black music" complaint can't go hand in hand with the "They just rip off Graceland" complaint: it's one or the other dudes (and surprise, it's not really either - you can work with musical tropes without "stealing" them, and people don't seem to complain when Dirty Projectors use high life guitar phrasings, which is probably where Ezra got his technique since he was in that band for awhile.)

    I recommended the Make-Up but he was too scared to listen to them I guess. Probably missed them at Coachella too. Oh well!
