Vampire Weekend

Behind every budding indie rock band is an equally fresh tagline that gets borrowed and modified by bloggers, album reviewers, and concert promoters. Vampire Weekend's goes something like this: Ivy-league trio delivers lo-fi pop-rock tunes, tinged with African beats and summertime guitar hooks. However you mold the tagline, Vampire Weekend are pretty accessible to all but the snobbiest of music fans.

Going by the small amount of recorded material that's available, Vampire Weekend don't seem to have settled on "a sound"--something that is working in their favor. "Oxford Comma" is a light-hearted, breezy pop song with tasteful guitar playing and smooth vocals. "Walcott" sounds like a raw New England anthem, combined with some New York rockability and classical orchestrating.
