Vampire Weekend: Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa

Here is a song I heard late one evening on Radio Three. Vampire Weekend are a clean-cut American indie band with a fondness for African rhythms and an African guitar sound. According to Wikipedia their music has variously been described as "Upper West Side Soweto" and "trust fund frat rock".

You may say there is nothing here that Paul Simon was not doing more than 20 years ago, but it is hard to dislike this track. You can also watch the band's official video of the song.

Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email:
