Modern Vampires of the City by Vampire Weekend
A Work of Contemplation and Undying Art
Vampire Weekend's eclectic brand of indie rock and pop drew attention and praise (and criticism) before the debut of their first album in 2008. Their third album, Modern Vampires of the City, brought five years of refinement that lead to a record that is cohesive as a whole, thoughtful in its contents, and just as fresh and engaging.
Modern Vampires of the City is diverse in influences, instrumentation, rhythms, and methods. Throughout the album, Ezra Koenig sings surprisingly cogent contemplations of life, time, relationships, and God. Timeless struggles for a timeless album.
