Growing up in a little farming community the music taste of the town sucked. It was either the lastest pop music or what people call country today. So having a brother who showed me Vampire Weekend was instrumental to my tastes. This album nearly 9 years later still never gets old. It's one of the best records of the decade, a true gem in the indie rock world.
I love Rostam, truly. I love him as his own outfit, but I loved him in Vampire Weekend too, and am excited/scared for the new album without him (hopefully still influenced by him).

If you follow #VampireWeekend’s Ezra Koenig on IG you know he’s a connoisseur of the whimsical ‘90s font Jokerman. Well this week on his Apple Music show Time Crisis, Koenig interviewed the font’s creator Andrew Smith, and then last night at a GQ event in Hollywood, VW covered “Jokerman,” the #BobDylan song it’s named after. 🃏 [📹: @theindyreview]
