Vampire Weekend's third album is a remarkable progression from a band that was already functioning at a high level. The songs are more spontaneous and dynamic and, along with the more lived-in sonics, Modern Vampires finds the group taking a leap forward into emotional directness. One particularly inspired ramble spins an analytic web from a friend's visit to Morocco, the history of the Strait of Gibraltar, a 1984 interview between Bob Dylan and Bono, the film The Secret of Roan Inish, and National Geographic's famed Afghan refugee cover- and not only does it make sense, it's written in a way that's funny.

It’s official: Vampire Weekend really don’t give a fuck about an Oxford comma. On their third album, Ezra Koenig and the band have rid themselves, once and for all, of the precious post-collegiate references that used to be their calling card: The girls of Wellfleet have scattered, and apparently that second horchata didn’t go down as smooth as the first. Koenig is now an old 29; adulthood is inescapable; a clock is ticking in his head.

Vampire Weekend Lyrics. Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). We know the fire awaits unbelievers All of the sinners the same Girl you and I will die unbelievers bound to the tracks of the train. See the snow come down It's coming on down from the highest peak Want a little leaf, but who's going to save a little leaf for me. I'm not excited But should I be Is this the fate that half of the world has planned for me? I know I love you And you love the sea Wonder if the water contains a little drop little drop.
Vampire Weekend have been around long enough that the show's target demographic remembers the release of their 2008 debut during their time in high school or college, and kept enough of a tab on the band to watch Koenig - along with t/producer Rostam Batmanglij, bassist Chris Baio, and drummer Chris Tomson - transform from Pitchfork darlings to Billboard 200 chart toppers. Perpetua points out in his fantastic analysis of the album. What makes Modern Vampires of the City not only one of the year's best albums, but also the band's overall best LP, is that it's able to paint a sympathetic portrait of a frustrated Millennial without falling prey to the verbose, Thought Catalog-style masochism that seems to end up serving as the most comprehendible take on that age group.
