Vampire Weekend w/Sky Ferreira
Puzzled. Flummoxed. Flabbergasted. These words might describe our reaction to hearing our mother sing the praises of hip indie popsters Vampire Weekend after they appeared on CBS Sunday Morning. Her record collection sheds some light on the situation: What it lacks in size, it makes up in scope, leaving room to appreciate VW’s inclusive aesthetic, focused strongly on blending African and American pop in a way not so different from Graceland-era Paul Simon. On further investigation, the group’s clean-cut image and Ivy League pedigree also helped give them an in with Ma. Guess we won’t tell her that they’re touring with electro-pop diva Sky Ferreira, whose latest video involves gyrating in a see-through top and stabbing an aggressive creep with an ice pick before drinking his blood. We don’t want her to worry.
