Upcoming Album - Vampire Weekend

One of the bands to come out of last year was Vampire Weekend, an indie rock group out of New York City. They tore up the music blog scene towards the end of last year, and they deserve it.
Of all the groups out there right now, these guys probably have the best sound. They have influences from africa and indie-pop music.
Their first, self titled album is due out next week on the 29th. The album's a killer one - it has some absolutely fantastic tracks: Mansard Roof, Oxford Comma, A-Punk, Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa, Campus, among others. They've got a great drum and guitar lineup, as well as some absolutely fantastic lyrics and song writing.
