wait for the season to come back to me:
As I walked to get lunch I passed by an actual record store. They still have those! It was Melody on Connecticut Avenue in Dupont Circle, and they had a whole bunch of Vampire Weekend posters in the window. I thought, hmm, that's a band I always forgot to check out. Now that they're advertising in an old-timey record store, the hype must be over.
So I downloaded the record when I got back to my desk. You guys out there have all heard it, I gather, but I'm like seven songs into my first listen. And, you know, not bad. A for effort. A little bit "Me and Julio"-era Paul Simon, a little bit Tom Tom Club. "A-Punk" is a good song. I don't know what's punk about it though.
