Black Weekend

It's nearly December, but lets rewind back to In the City in October, and the band that had literally EVERY bloodsucking member of the music industry salivating, Vampire Weekend. They, along with Florida band the Black Kids, are the bright shining hope of US indie, and aren't really what you might expect as they seem to actually be inspired by the anthemic nature of bands like Arcade Fire. Not that their songs sound like Arcade Fire, but more so that they're open to different arrangements and instruments than the traditional verse/chorus/verse guitar boredom. While this should (in theory) excite me, it doesn't, and I'm not a massive fan of either. I'm sure someone will come along and try to change my mind, but until that happens, here's a couple of tunes.
