Vampire Weekend sticks to their roots, whilst evolving and building on their unique sound. Songs like Unbelievers, Ya Hey, and Step sound like the VW that we are used to, but influences from Rostam Batmanglij’s side project Discovery can be heard in songs like Diane Young, with a more electric sound, with a heavy use of auto-tune in the “baby, baby”.
The album isn’t yet available for streaming on Spotify, but according to the bands AMA on Reddit today, it should be available in the coming weeks. In the meantime, it looks like you’ll have to shell out some cash if you can’t wait for the bootleggers to upload it to youtube.
In my opinion, it is definitely worth the buy. Even if you haven’t heard much of their stuff, this band is a unique and refreshing sound in indie rock.
