hanno anche appena registrato un MTV Unplugged http://www.mtv.com/music/unplugged/
MTV ne dice:
il loro disco, come si diceva, è in streaming qui: http://www.vampireweekend.com/Known as erudite lads, Vampire Weekend formed in 2006 while Ezra Koenig, Chris Baio, Rostam Batmanglij, and Chris Tomson were attending Columbia University. It didn't take too long for the band's following to spread beyond the campus' boundaries. The band's Ivy League image combined with its Afro-pop inspired sound -- for which they coined the term "Upper West Side Soweto" -- quickly caught the attention of the top indie music blogs and publications. The band already had a large following eagerly awaiting the release of their self-titled debut album in early 2008 and the group broke out of indie-rock obscurity when their second single "A-Punk" made its way onto the pop charts. With their sophomore album Contra already gaining lots of buzz there should be no doubt that Vampire Weekend are here to stay.
Few bands have adapted their sound to MTV Unplugged with as much ease as Vampire Weekend. They use the performance to try out new, and in their words more "accurate," arrangements of their songs. The addition of a small string section, flutes and Batmanglii's upright piano add a chamber-pop sheen to favorites like "A-Punk," "Oxford Comma" and "M79." Their new album Contra is well represented with "White Sky," "Run" and the high-energy single "Cousins." Fans of the band and the show will love this newest addition to the MTV Unplugged canon.
