where in gods name are people getting that?
more successful than they should be
little bit boring ?
girls fancy them and like them despite knowing that they're a bit boring. this last point is 100% TRUTH.
Vampire Weekend aren't boring.
You're WRONG summers.
They're mind-destroyingly shit, clueless, soulless, charmless drivel. Oh, and tedious. Boring doesn't cover it.
both Vampire Weekend and Is This It are a pair of effortlessly glorious records, full of single-worthy songs that would spread glee in any indie club.
Both had lots of hype. Both lived up to the hype. Both sold loads in the UK but not as much over there. Both from New York.
is this it you would get whatever the vampire weekend album is called - strokes/ television??? whuh
but are bound to get shitter and shitter?
musical comparisons, and not many of these responses are addressing that. both of them being fom the same city, for example, is completely irrelevant. fountains of wayne are from new york, doesn't mean their compared to the strokes
PS. Are you really that bothered?
clearly think that they are a lot better than they really are and both put in minimal effort and sound so soulless
I saw VW at Glastonbury and WErchter this year and thought they were v good. Except that 'face' song which was rubbish.
Not groundbreaking but good clean fun.
just remember that Blake's got a new face
it's like comparing the stooges to paul simon
Both are very simple catchy songs played with bass and guitar and drums.
They play quite short pop songs.
The drums are really simple.
The guitars are tight and intricate with lots of downward strumming.
They're both from New York.
The production is really similair.
that few people can admit aren't actually all that?
music journos make lazy comparisons
