I loved (still do!) the first Vampire Weekend record. I know it's going to make all of my tougher punk rock records want to kick my ass, but I can't help it.
It's been so long since I heard something (anything!) that filled me with so much joy. You can't be angry when you listen to their first (self titled) record. I can't wait to pick up the new one this week...There's a great todd Oldham quote about happiness being a design element in whatever you do- and i think the Vampire boys accomplish that extremely well.
I also like it when people tell me "it looks like you have a lot of fun" when they're eyeing my stuff at shows. Because I do and I'm glad it shows!
